“Caspar Brötzmann is probably one of the best guitarists I’ve ever met!” – Thursten Moore (Sonic Youth)
“Music, that could hang also in the Louvre.” Monika Döhring (Loft)
“Schueppel’s latest profile shines a light on cult guitarist Caspar Brötzmann who, since the 1980s, has influenced artists as wide ranging as Thurston Moore, Rammstein and Sunn O))). Using a 2010 concert at Berlin’s Berghain Club as his starting point, Schueppel takes the viewer on a trip into Brötzmann’s deepest thoughts and dreams…” Dino Gollnick (The Quietus)
“Its not a musicfilm which emerged. Even if music plays the main role and is somehow always present. But not only in sound, but also in words. A fantastic film!” Reiner Veit (RadioKultur)
“Time for the Gardens! In the center of the big noise lives a hardly smaller silence…” Robert Miessner (Junge Welt)
End of 2010, after 14 years break, Caspar Broetzmann performs again in original lineup with his band “Caspar Broetzmann Massaker” at the legendary Berlin-club “Berghain”. Through the 80s and early 90s the trio was part of the most innovative German musicians in West-Berlin. After their time-out, they came back even more heavy, loud, precise, clear and almost transparent, and presented a wide screen from the deepest soul, full of atmospheric images.
“Broetzmann – Thats When the World Is Mine” shows the emotional interspaces from which Caspar Brötzmann creates his powerful, archaic soundscapes. Between noise and silence the film develops from the inside a sensitive portrait of a musician, who always consistently went his own way, without subordinating himself to the rules of the music business.
