Discussing her work in Robert de Niro's new film "The Good Shepherd
", premiering at the Berlinale this week, actress
Martina Gedeck comes over all philosophical: "I always get obsessed with the dissolution of space and time on set. In a day of filming we'll accomplish one, maybe two minutes of film, and in the evening you have the feeling of only having lived one or two minutes.
You are always playing with time, starting again from the beginning, repeating what's in the past. Time dissolves. Added to which, you are working in an environment where the past has been reconstructed right down to the smallest detail, where one new reality exists next to the other."
