(b. 1944)

The Austrian actor and film. Appeared in films: "Mephisto," Colonel Redley, Hanussen, never say "never," "Out of Africa", "Seven minutes," "French Revolution", "Mario and the magician ", etc.

Klaus Maria Brandauer was born June 22, 1944 in the Austrian village of Alt-Auszee. After graduating from school, he entered the Stuttgart Institute of music and cinema. But not until the end of douchilsya - it seemed that too much time devoted to fencing, diction lessons, and other equipment.

In the middle of the third course Klaus Maria started working in a small provincial theater. Here he met Karen, who became his wife.

Brandauer Soon he moved to Dusseldorf, where he received the principal role of Shakespeare, Schiller, Goethe, Moliere ... And partners have a gift of fate - for example, Elisabeth Bergner. Brandauer went with her on stage and envied: he wanted the same power over the audience.

Then, in his theatrical career fit Vienna, Munich, Hamburg, Salzburg, West Berlin, Zurich and Vienna again. Since 1971, he - the leading actor and director, the oldest, with a deep tradition of the Burgtheater.

Then Brandauer debuted in the film - in the film American Lee Kechinov "Salzburg Banda" (1972) - of Nazism, neo-Fascism. Of Hungarian directors presented its first moviegoer Andras Kovacs - Brandauer played with him in "October Sunday" (1979), chronicles the war, the wily German diplomat. Before this Brandauer has performed a central role in the TV serial "Jean-Christophe on novel-epic Romain Rolland. "I was always excited thinking: most importantly - creativity and civic engagement? - The actor spoke. - And is it possible to combine them, combine? Jean-Christophe - musician, composer, but he feels a need to participate in society, to influence it. However, can not fully devote public activities, because they did not imagine himself without music, and at the same time worry question: is there a general sense of her writing, when so many people living in deprivation? .. "But the great success waited Brandauera in ; Mephisto ... Hungarian director Istvan Szabo, natknuvshis photo unknown actor, he suddenly saw in it the leading role in his future film. Work on interesting primary literary - novel "Mephisto." German anti Klaus Mann wrote this book in 1936 in exile. A hero of the novel was a real prototype: a famous actor and director Gustaf Gryundgens, which balovnem philanthropy Nazis. It is believed that he was the best Mephistopheles German theater. Random, but in his own expressive coincidence. Gustav Gryundgens died in Manila in 1963, the same day when Brandauer for the first time in his life came on the professional stage - in a play by Shakespeare "Measure for measure." The book, Klaus Mann, in which the name of Hendrick Hefgena withdrawn Gryundgens, made the strongest impression on Brandauera ...

After seventeen years, when Istvan Szabo called him with the proposal, Brandauer cried into the phone: "It′s my role, I am your man." So the director and actor have found each other.

From the confessions Brandauera: "As an actor Hefgen somewhat akin to me. I′m also a thirst to be loved by all, here′s a success. Therefore, to play in this film was like therapy for me ... I am equally as alien to the mindset of Hefgena, and its actions: the actor can not and should not live in the society ", it is the duty of everyone - remember that you - a man and citizen."

In 1981, the "Mephisto" went in triumphal procession through the screens the world, collecting awards and honorary titles. It seems the entire world press photo is spared, which Istvan Szabo and Klaus Maria Brandauer, siyaya with pride, holding in the hands of "Oscar". Should - Sabo held a gold figure "David Donatello, traditionally awarded in Rome the best foreign film of the year. And just a figure - Brandauer, for the execution of the main roles. This coincided with the peak of the world rolled paintings.

So, "Mephistopheles" opened in the biography of the actor a new chapter, its title - the glory. Klaus Maria Brandauer became literally hot cakes. He received at least twenty-offers from Hollywood to play the role of Nazi generals and guards concentration. In so doing, it sulili large fees. But Klaus Maria rejected them: movies designed surface.

Brandauer funded screening anti-war novel writer from Germany Hans Helmut Krista Fabrica officers. " Sam was in the TV films: "The Fifth Woman" (Italy, 1982), "snob" (1983), "The way out of town" (1983).

The first proposal, which Brandauer adopted in the United States, was a film in the series of James Bond "Never say" never "(1983)." It was a sort of provocation to draw attention to participate in the next, already a serious film - the actor smiles. - In some sense, the idea worked. I think that I began to work in America, not bad. If I just met a good man, and it is considered to have been richer. And here I met with a кинематографомx26quot;.

Then venture to put Brandauer тогу bloody emperor Nero in the multi-screen novel Heinrich Senkevich "Kamo gryadeshi?" (1984), which has carried out for the Italian television Franco Rossi.

In the same year Brandauer shot in the film Yevgeny Yevtushenko "Kindergarten", creating a Wehrmacht officer, who occupied and devastated Yasnaya Polyana interrogates captive Soviet soldier. "I was raised single-mindedness of the characters, and I do like the movie. In addition, through shooting, I was able to ride on the Soviet Union, to know your country.

I am glad that you visited that time and again can come to you. "

A new front has been met with the IstvГЎn SzabГі. The film Redley Colonel "(1984) - another" history of one career. "

"The Enigma" Colonel Redley officer of the General Staff, Chief of Intelligence of Austro-Hungarian army, found guilty of treason fatherland, unravel so far. Istvan Szabo and Klaus Maria Brandauer offered their views on the famous event. They are interested in not the deed, but the path to it - the whole range of emotions a person who started with vernopoddannicheskih feelings and passionate service to the emperor and the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, but finished a betrayal, even a series of betrayal: a friend, family, ideas, which has devoted itself, homeland , embodies this idea.

On his hero said Klaus Maria Brandauer: "He was a gifted, even talented, but from an early age give him confidence that he belongs not to himself, as a man with a beautiful beard, whose portrait hangs in his office, - Emperor Franz Joseph . But then, completely Riddled in his limitless vernopoddannichestve, he suddenly realizes that going the wrong way. What in life is not enough merely to preach loyalty to the authorities that everyone has the right to be a person, to have dreams, desires and demands. "

"Redley" Lock film reputation, Klaus-Maria Brandauera. And again he has no shortage of proposals. He plays Beethoven in the Franco-Austrian film "The nephew of Beethoven" (1985). Renowned American director Sydney Pollack, invited the Austrian star in his movie "Out of Africa" (1985). And do not progadal: the film won several Oscar. Together with Brandauerom in this exotic film glittering Robert Redford and Meril Streep.

And still his soul - in the theater. At the Burgtheater stage, he begins to play complex roles - Hamlet in Shakespeare′s play of the same name. On the film "Out of Africa" Brandauer Fridays sat in Nairobi in the plane, and on Saturday and Sunday to play Hamlet in the Burgtheater. And on Monday once again returning to Nairobi. The actor arrives from Nairobi or Los Angeles to one hundred and eighty of the plays "Hamlet"!

In an interview at the time Brandauer said: "I have always held a theatrical actor. Twenty years ago, I married not only to his wife, but also in theater. At the same time, I am a child of this century, in which occupied the place of film, television, radio. I make walking in these areas, but always returning to the stage. " And when Brandauera asked whether it does not interfere with private life, this constant in the "theater" glow, he replied: "... with regard to personal life, my wife is also a director - in the theater and on television, so that we have some experience of understanding of each other.

"

In 1988, Istvan Szabo makes another movie with Brandauerom in the title role. The painting, called "Hanussen on behalf of the main character, tells of the clairvoyant, prophet. This person really existed - he was a disciple of Sigmund Freud. The painting Hanussen comes to believe that given the gift of looking to the future. And it begins to seem that he is - the center of the universe, that all around are obliged to obey him the quest for self-realization ... Brandauer displays on-screen image of extreme individualista, showing that its hero is not a carrier of a positive attitude ...

It would seem that the trilogy Istvan Szabo, in which the characters Brandauera dragged into a whirlpool of Nazism, had exhausted his interest in this topic. But in 1989, a first job as director Brandauera "Seven Minutes" ( "George Elzer - one of the Germans"), and again - the Fuhrer and the people around him. This film was shot on the novel by Steve Shepherd "Master", a simple story told provincial carpenter who attempts to Hitler. "Seven minutes," was seen by about half the audience. For a picture of a very great success. In addition, the film has received numerous prizes.

In 1988, producer Jurgen Haaze Brandauera asked, not whether he will take on directing screening novels of Thomas Mann "Mario and the magician"? "As I remember now: I sit at the Hotel Atlantic in Hamburg and I read to my wife Karin novel by Thomas Mann - remembers Klaus Maria. - It took 1 hour and 15 minutes. That evening, held during the reading, was simply wonderful. After talk to Karin, I decided to make a movie. "

In the novel Mann refers to a German writer, who in the late 20′s with his family spend their holidays in Italy, where the rule of Mussolini. There he is confronted with nationalism and hostility to foreigners. The translation of these moods becomes fatal magician and hypnotist Kipolla, which at its sessions will deprive its audience.

Klaus Maria Brandauer, not only put the picture, but it played a major role, although shot in that film did not want. ( "I was going, - said the actor - knowingly violate commonly:" Brandauer shoots only film, which plays itself and can afford everything. ") But the singer of Kipolly refused to participate in the painting, and Brandaueru had to rely only on himself.

In "Mario and the magician" Klaus-Maria, as usual, was filmed without make-up. "In addition to the mask in the" Mephisto "I′ve never used makeup in the movie - he says. - In the James Bond movie" Never say "never" to me during the whole movie was even my own black pants and my t-shirt. I like all nezagrimirovannoe, subsistence. At I see the sweat, the signs of aging, red spots on skin, puffy cheeks ...

"

In 1992, Brandauera postig a heavy blow: at the age of 49 years died from cancer of his wife, Karin. Immediately after her death in the newspaper articles appeared with headlines like: "World star speaks with his dead wife" or "Brandauer not make his wife′s death." In his life and his work Klaus Maria did a lot of things just to please Karin ...

All the best role Brandauera - historical. In the film "The French Revolution" (1989) he played Danton. Critics struck a contrast between private and professional revolutionary Danton. Also noted that the French actors have played in the romantic tradition, but it is critical of modern technology. Most same Brandaueru "was simply ridiculous that the French film about the French Revolution, Danton plays an Austrian." And then he created an unforgettable image of Rembrandt.

Theater Brandauer is continuing to play the role of Hamlet. "My Hamlet said that he would have been a better actor than the Prince of Denmark. If he plays well, it does nothing, but if something does, do not think that is spontaneously ".

He has experience, a world famous, but still Brandauer every night, play any worries, as the ambitious debutant, and the maximum spread in the game.

Asked what he prefers to play - classic or modern, Klaus Maria responds as follows: "In art there is no classic and contemporary. Art is art. For me, art - is something that everyone can understand. Much of course depends on the point of view. Art should be for everyone, and not for the ghetto, comprised of intellectuals. If we who do not understand, then, the art was gone. "

Klaus Maria Brandauer is rarely gives interviews. Anyone who wants to photograph him, must sign a statement that the photos will be used only in connection with his new film. In the event of a breach of this agreement, the guilty faces a fine of 250,000 marks. "I do not want to market walked my photos for the section of secular chronicles - explains step actor. - I never wanted, and now protected from this with the help of a lawyer. "

Brandauer what presents itself in old age? "I sit with my friends at my favorite beer in my native town, and says:" And then, guys, I took in the Hollywood movie about James Bond. "This sounds good, even from the lips of toothless old man" ...
