Tom Tykwer

Hailed as German Cinema's bright new hope, Tom Tykwer has quickly made a name for himself abroad as a fresh visualist with an energetic and passionate cinematic style. For his breakthrough film, the international success "Run Lola Run" (1999) and his follow-up feature "The Princess and the Warrior" (2001), Tykwer has enjoyed early comparisons to the late Polish auteur Krzysztof Kieslowski for his stylistic explorations of the effects of chance and choice on the human condition.
