To capture the huge sound, the gamut of visual impressions, the minute details and grand gestures so that cinema viewers can acquire sense of experiencing Rammstein live: To do this, one needs to convey a sense of intimate proximity to what is transpiring on stage.
Second, one needs to capture what the experience looks like from the perspective of an audience member in such a huge crowd. And third, one needs to communicate the excitement of being there - not to mention that the music needs to sound insanely good.Rammstein: Paris sets a new standard for concert films.
During the "Made in Germany" tour, the celebrated Swedish director, Jonas Åkerlund, filmed two acclaimed Rammstein concerts in March 2012 - each for an audience of 17,000 at the Bercy Arena in Paris.
