Hanna Schmitz/The Reader #1: The Oscar winning performance



Hanna Schmitz: It doesn't matter what I think. It doesn't matter what I feel. The dead are still dead.







Kate - "This is a beautiful and very genuine love story, and that’s how I always saw it. I was very moved by how these two people met. This is his first experience of intimacy in that way and love in that way and understanding of what love is and can mean and how deeply it affects the rest of his life. He loved that woman. She wasn’t cruel to him. She didn’t force him into anything. There’s nothing that I believe to be remotely inappropriate or salacious about that relationship. Yes, she’s 33. He’s 15. As I say, she thinks he’s 17. But Hanna hasn’t experienced these emotions ever in her life. That’s why the relationship becomes so dear to her and why she longs for it and yearns for it so many years later. She just wants to see his face again. She needs that communication. It’s the thing that feeds her. It’s the thing that keeps her alive for the 18 years that she spends in prison up to the point of her death. “The Reader” is about a young man’s experience of falling in love with somebody who turns out to have made some choices that were unavoidable in her life that resulted in horrific crimes against humanity. He in some way had to deal with the fact that he had loved her, and she had loved him. I’m going to stop there."
‘I Understood Her as a Woman’ | Oscars | Jewish Journal



How would you describe The Reader then?

KW: To me, it was always an extraordinarily unconventional love story between two people who were both very different as people — mainly because of the age gap, and because of Hanna’s two secrets


How would you describe Hanna? What’s your take on her?

KW: My job — as the actress playing Hanna Schmitz, as the actress playing any part — is to understand the character and to ultimately love the character. And I did love Hanna, absolutely, because I understood her as profoundly as I did at the end of the day. Did I sympathize with her? Yes, I did. But that doesn’t mean I sympathized with S.S. guards, not at all. But that’s what I love about the film. It’s not a story about forgiveness. It’s not a story about reconciliation. It’s a story about regret, and how you don’t choose who you fall in love with.
