Best German actress

A companion piece to the other 2 polls.

by Anonymousreply 4003/31/2014

Romy was half Austrian, but for me she was the best actress of this list(and not only)by far!

Romy is one of the greatest actresses ever! Incredibly expressive. If she was American she could have reached the fame and heights that follows Meryl Streep or Katharine Hepburn.

Unforgettable and a real actress, not only a star.

Eva Mattes was great in Woyzeck with Klaus Kinski.

Both of them are great. Kinski was a complete nut case, but very talented. Love the documentary Werner Herzog did about him - My dearest fiend. Worth watching just because there is a scene played by Jason Robards and then the same scene with Kinski shown in comparison.

Who said good directing is 90% choosing good actors to play the roles? Very true!

Hanna Schygulla in the Marriage of Maria Brown gives one of the best performances in the history of cinema.

Barbara Sukowa is pretty amazing in Lola.

Marlene Dietrich, did not act, she POSED!

Excepting a few early films, she may have been an icon but she wasn't an actress at all.

Schygulla's fab but I always preferred Margit Carstensen in Fassbinder's films - she oozed the repugnant aspect that was so important to his world-view (I say that with love)

ARE YOU NUTS? Dietrich comes first in this poll? Excuse me? Dietrich was not near as good an actress as ROMY SCHNEIDER was. Romy beats them all. No one like like Romy! She combined beauty and charm with instinct, cleverness and sensitivity. ROMY SCHNEIDER ALL THE WAY! It's a disgrace that you gave Dietrich more votes. You have no idea about acting, clearly!

"Nina Foch"

Foch was not German. She was a Dutch born, half Dutch half American actress.

R2: Elke Sommers is Swedish, not German

by Anonymousreply 3202/09/2014

Oops, my apologies, Elke Sommers is German. I was thinking of someone else when I saw her name.

by Anonymousreply 3302/09/2014

You also misspelled her name, R32/R33.

I recently watched "Barbara" with Nina Hoss and I was really impressed with the depth and subtlety of her acting.

I am going to watch "A Woman in Berlin" next to see how different she is in that film.

Why exactly was DL fave Luise Rainer nicknamed "Viennese Teardrop" if she was German? Well, it certainly sounds better than "Dusseldorfian Teardrop"!

R39 She grew up in Vienna and was part of legendary Max Reinhardt's Vienna theatre group. Plus, she became famous in America in the days when Hitler already became a major threat to the world so the studios probably wanted people to think she's Austrian, not German.

That's kind of hillarios since Hitler was actually an Austrian, not German. But even today most people don't know that. Someone once said that the greatest Austrian achievement was convincing the world that Hitler was German and Beethowen was Austrian.
