Rammstein “Paris” / Dir. Jonas Åkerlund
Filmed in 2012, with over 30 different cameras in the Paris’ Bercy Arena, the concert film captures the ferocity and scale of Rammstein’s gargantuan live shows. Frontman Till Lindermann has subsequently become a qualified pyrotechnician due to the band’s excessive use of fire in their live shows. Fans of the band even coined the phrase “other bands play, Rammstein burns”.
“Concert films are always a big challenge. I compare it to shooting fireworks. The way I approach it is to try to translate the energy that you get in the room onto film, using every trick in the book to make as much of an impression as I can on the audience”. Jonas Åkerlund
