Rolf Sachs’ Movie Pick

Rolf Sachs has two FMOATs. His first choice reflects his great sense of humour: the 1966 French comedy La Grande Vadrouille. But he’s also an aesthete and an artist – and that is mirrored in his second pick: the 1926 silent movie Faust by the great German director F.W. Murnau.

Typisch Deutsch? with Rolf Sachs

Insurance, order, objectivity

Rolf Sachs 1“When I organize a bobsleigh race in Switzerland,” he says, “the English tend to throw themselves down the bob run with howls of delight. The Germans meanwhile want to know whether or not they’re insured!” The man talking really does organize bob races in Switzerland: he is, after all, the president of the St. Moritz Bobsleigh Club. He’s also an expert on the fine distinctions between English and German culture. What’s more, Rolf Sachs is a very accomplished artist and designer – and my latest guest on Talking Germany.
