Bernd Eichinger is dead

The German film powerhouse, best remembered for the last days of Hitler film titled (in English) Downfall, has died of a heart attack aged 61.

Eichinger wrote the screenplay for Downfall and was its producer. He also produced The Name of the Rose (1986), Perfume (2006) and another 20 movies. As a director, he was reponsible for a ghastly Parsifal in Berlin five years ago and fast forgotten.
The three epic films will be remembered so long as poeple watch cinema.
