Biography
He was born in Vienna in 1952. He is the director of numerous award-winning documentaries. Werner Herzog named Ulrich Seidl one of his ten favorite filmmakers and said about his film Animal Love: “Never before in cinema have I been able to look straight into hell.“ His first fiction feature, Dog Days, won the Special Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Venice Film Festival. Import / Export, the first film he also produced, premiered in competition in Cannes in 2007. Currently he is working on two new projects: Paradise, a fiction feature and In the Basement, a documentary feature.

The Bosom Friend / Ulrich Seidl

The film portrays René Rupnik, a fifty-year-old math teacher who lives with his elderly mother, surrounded by walls of garbage, paper and newspapers that he has amassed through years of collecting on the street. In his fantasy, the obsessive breast expert lives with Senta Berger, the Viennese movie star, whom he has admired for years. He has seen all her movies and has countless pictures of her. He’s only seen her in real life at the theater, in a play he saw fifty times, with his new binoculars, from the standing room section.
