Maren Ade | ‘Toni Erdmann’


“Sandra Hüller’s character singing Whitney Houston’s ‘The Greatest Love of All,’ which was an interestin­g shooting day. It was really hard to shoot that scene; we did that song eight times and it was very boring. So we watched together and Sandra said, ‘It’s completely boring.’ And then I showed her this version she did during rehearsal. We called [that one] ‘Las Vegas.’ It was a very expressive version. And she said, ‘OK, I’m doing this Vegas thing now, but I’m doing it only one time!’ The sound guy almost killed me because he was trying to get it recorded properly, and it was so loud suddenly and so dramatic. I remember the woman who was doing the makeup was really crying.”
