Adlon claims that he isn’t really a director. "I never studied it!” he declares. He sees himself instead as a storyteller who needs contact with other people in order to develop stories that will do justice to their human essence. This is probably one reason the professional actor prefers to work with amateurs and performers who only act occasionally, such as Marianne Sägebrecht or the Canadian singer K.D. Lang.
Adlon came to cinematic films via documentaries and portraits of literary figures, as evidenced by his preference for characters who are different, who don’t fit the norm. The same predilection is true for his landscapes and settings, and he has been moving ever farther away his first "homes” in literature (Céleste, The Swing) and in Bavaria (Five Last Days, Sugarbaby), all the way to the U.S.A. (Out of Rosenheim, Salmonberries).
