    Surely this man must be at the end of his mediocre career. His bank clerk by numbers way of directing films, souless, artless, talentless has made him a complete nonentity of European cinema. Why oh why is he getting money for this old pap that noone is interested in watching. what a total fake and lover of none other than himself.

    Just saw his Return to Montauk Yet another boring old aged middle class exercise in self indulgence that has no chance of getting its money back. So many talented youngsters and these has-beens continue to take up space. Please Mr Volker – time to pass the baton on to a generation that makes films people want to watch. Poor Gaumont. They wont see a cent back from their ill-advised investment
