The film producer Bernd Eichinger has died. Christiane F. (the children from Bahnhof Zoo) or the Baader-Meinhof group, the monk age (In the Name of the Rose) or the demon Hitler ( Downfall ): Bernd Eichinger has been a producer as well as a director, also a screenwriter: He tried to find out, which topics areas were able to bring back again the million production costs.

It is not enough to organize a technically perfect rotation, famous actors, exciting script-writers, a comprehensive and tough advertising strategy. It must also are taken between the teeth: an issue, rumbling in all of us as undone: For example, the modern problem of a drug-dependent youth or this last-century demon Hitler! The dubious medieval Catholic church or the actual ideological terrorism that threatens the societies: Eichinger moved around with his pointing finger in the historical wounds of German self employment – and made it in Hollywood. We are missing now not only an assertive organizational talent, but also a theme-finding genius.

Der Filmproduzent Bernd Eichinger ist verstorben. Christiane F. die Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo oder die Baader-Meinhof-Gruppe, das Mönchszeitalter (Im Namen der Rose) oder der Dämon Hitler (Der Untergang): Bernd Eichinger, zwar Produzent aber auch Regisseur, auch Drehbuchschreiber: Er versuchte herauszuspüren, welche Themen-Bereiche in der Lage waren, die Millionen-Produktions-Kosten auch wieder einzuspielen. Dazu reicht nicht ein technisch perfekter Dreh, berühmte Schauspieler, spannendes Drehbuch, lückenlose und zähe Werbestrategie. Es muss stets auch ein Thema zwischen die Zähne genommen werden, das in uns allen als unerledigt rumort: Zum Beispiel die drogen-abhängigen Jugendlichen oder Hitler, die dubiose mittelalterliche Kirche oder neu-zeitlicher ideologischer Terror, der die Gesellschaften bedroht: Eichinger rührte mit seinem Finger in den geschichtlichen Wunden deutscher Selbstbeschäftigung herum – und machte damit in Hollywood Karriere. Es fehlt nunmehr nicht mehr nur ein durchsetzungsfähiges Organisations-Talent, sondern auch ein Themen-Findungs-Genie.
