Walk With Me – erzählt von Benedict Cumberbatch

Es ist alles andere als ein üblicher Film. Doch wer auf Action-Szenen nicht verzichten kann, für den ist “Walk With Me” nicht unbedingt die erste Wahl, wenn es um eine gute abendliche Unterhaltung geht. Es sei denn, man sucht Ruhe und Entspannung, die weder etwas mit  Kitsch noch  mit platter Unterhaltung zu tun hat. Das Publikum soll das Kino mit einem Gefühl des inneren Friedens und der Zufriedenheit verlassen, wenn es den Film gesehen hat, schreiben die Macher von “Walk With Me”,  Marc J. Francis und Max Pugh, im Presseheft, das die Veröffentlichung der DVD begleitet.

Das ist ihnen auf eine wunderbare Weise gelungen. Die Bilder wirken, als seien sie soeben entstanden, als sei man als Zuschauer unmittelbar dabei, als könne man den buddhistischen Mönchen über die Schulter schauen. Miterleben, wie sie innehalten wenn Glocken läuten oder eine Uhr mit dem Glockenschlag von Big Ben die Zeit anzeigt. Profane, alltägliche Dinge wie das Tippen am Laptop oder das Rasieren der Haare bekommen auf diese Weise genauso eine beruhigende Wirkung wie Szenen mit in unterschiedlichen Haltungen meditierenden Mönchen oder Szenen mit Landschaftsbildern.

“Thich Nhat Hanhs Leben hat mich zutiefst berührt.”
Benedict Cumberbatch

Zum Glück wurde die Stimme des Erzählers Benedict Cumberbatch nicht wie leider so oft bei uns üblich synchronisiert, sondern wie der gesamte Film mit deutschen Untertitel versehen. Und so entfalten die Zitate,  die der britische Schauspieler aus den frühen Tagebüchern des Zen-Meisters Thich Nhat Hanh vorträgt, ihre volle Wirkung, geben sie doch tiefe Einblicke in die Zeit, als der Meister nur ein einfacher Mönch war, der noch dabei war, seinen Weg  und das Geheimnis der Achtsamkeit zu finden.  “Thich Nhat Hanhs Leben hat mich zutiefst berührt”, sagt Benedict Cumberbatch (Bild/Foto: Getty Images)  über seine Arbeit an dem Film und ist davon überzeugt, dass das Publikum von dem Film bewegt sein wird.  “Walk With Me” ist einer dieser ruhigen Filme, die den Zuschauer noch eine ganze Weile begleiten und an den man immer wieder denken wird.

Matt Haig: How to Stop Time

Time travelling isn’t a new topic neither in films nor in literature. It seems that people have always been fascinated by stories about travelling back into history to meet people from the past and forward in time to get a glimpse of a possible future. BBC’s  “Doctor Who” has everything people expect from a telly series covering that topic: an age old time traveller who knows not only how to handle humans but also past, present and the future – not to mention all sorts of aliens.

“My mother died a very long time ago. I, on the other hand, did not.”

Matt Haig’s new book “How to Stop Time” comes without aliens, or strange tech gadgets but with a man who ages in slow motion. Tom Hazard may look like a 40 year old guy. But he has outlived centuries before he hits modern day London – and he hasn’t lost his memory. That’s why he not only remembers ancient times and places like Shakespeare’s London (and the great playwright himself). He also has to cope with serious headaches indicating that his brain, like a hard drive, is about to reach its maximum capacity. Teaching history at a school in London, Tom uses his first-hand-knowledge to bring history to life for his pupils without revealing his true identity. But the past is always with him.

“How to Stop Time” is an intense story that hooks the reader from the very beginning not because it is breathtakingly fast and action packed but because it is calm and lacks all sorts of excitement in a very fascinating way.  Matt Haig’s newest novel is one to loose yourself in  – which is the best you can say of any book.

Die deutsche Ausgabe wird 2018 im dtv erscheinen.

Benedict Cumberbatch: I am a very lucky man

Over the last couple of years Benedict Cumberbatch gained lots of fans, especially women. Whether or not his wife is jealous of them,  the British actor, who in the last two years alone appeared in five films, reveals in this interview.  Additionally he  takes over the role as Sherlock Holmes on telly on a regular basis. The last episode of the fourth series aired on Sunday, 11th June on German broadcaster ARD.

Question: Besides your job you and your wife Sophie have to care for your two year old son Christopher and your new born son Hal. Isn’t this situation a bit too stressful?
Benedict Cumberbatch: It’s not stressful, it’s a blessing. It’s unbelievable that I’m offered roles at all. And that I am able to choose which one I want to take, that they are so different from one another and that people seem to like those films – this is something you simply can’t expect at all.

Have you ever imagined that the series would be such a huge success? What makes your version of Sherlock Holmes so popular?
I had not the faintest idea. Maybe it’s good we don’t do more episodes. Fans are more keen on what will happen and we do always look fresh and relaxed (laughs). Seriously, I do think that all figures in the series have their very special weaknesses or failures. The audience can accept them more easily.

The finale of series four is about to air (in Germany when this interview was first published). What was the best thing that happend on set?
Definitely Toby, the bloodhound of the first (it says “last” in the German version) episode. That damn dog wouldn’t move while filming because it turned out he hates asphalt and humans. He was trained in the countryside. It was a real comedy getting him to move.

As Holmes you almost have a romantic relationship with your coat (it says ‘cloak’ in the German version but you know about cloaks). Is there any private …?
… clothing I have an romantic  relationship? (laughs) Would be cool if I said I have a favourite blanket I’m carrying around since childhood, wouldn’t it? But there is nothing at all. My clothes are very boring, mostly one colour and I prefer silver, grey and blue.

Fans don’t think you are boring. You achieved cult status.
It’s something I never longed for. But it’s part of the job of being an actor.  Biggest problems I have with the pun some of my very intelligent, witty and creative female fans are playing with my name.

You’re hinting at the name “Cumberbitches” they gave themselves?
Yes, it’s a bit of self humiliating. I have made it quite clear that I would be more happy with a slightly different version of that name. But in the end everyone is free to decide which name to choose for oneself.

What about your wife? Isn’t she jealous of all the female fans?
Sophie loves me and is proud of my work. That’s all that matters. We are made for each other and fit together perfectly. That’s why she has no problems with all the stuff that’s going on. She’s a very strong and confident woman. I am a very lucky man.

How are you dealing with all the fame?
I ignore it and am trying to enjoy all the wonderful moments I can live through as an actor. It’s very easy to be dragged away by all the fuzz that’s made up around your person. That’s why it’s so important for me to have family and friends I know for a very long time. They keep me grounded.

You seem to be very self-confident.
Problem is self-confidence often is taken for arrogance. I’m a man with some short-comings.

That is?
Well, I do like tech gadgets but I’m not really good with them. I’m just an ordinary user who gets screwed up if something doesn’t work.

Do you always have your phone at hand?
Only for my job. Because I would loose out on all my appointments. When I’m at home, I don’t want to know anything of this.

What are you up to when you are at home?
First I’m changing into something very comfy. There’s nothing more wonderful than watching a great film crawled up on the sofa in front of your fireplace. But more often I’m reading a book. That calms me down.

Are you into sports?
Not in any studio. I like hiking in nature or walking through a park to clear my brain. Music helps me.

What is your favourite music?
Everything. Most of all I like songs getting me to think because they cover everything that goes wrong in this world. Just like Radiohead’s “Burn the Witch”. That songs touches my soul.

What should we do to make the world a better place?
It’s up to everyone to decide if or if not to make a difference. I’m working with an organisation called “Liberty” backing human rights in the UK. We’re trying to support people who are discriminated because of their origin, colour or religion.

You’re 40 now. Do you look back to your 20s nostalgically?
Not at all. The older I get, the happier I get with my life. I love my wonderful life, now more than ever, together with my family and the fantastic people surrounding me. I’m very much looking forward forward to what may lie ahead.

 

The German version of this interview was originally published online here.  My translation is published with the friendly permission of the author.

Sherlock: The Six Thatchers

The new year brought new Sherlock. And as always  the fans gathered round telly or any internet device to watch the first episode of series 4, “The Six Thatchers”. Written by Mark Gatiss this episode started where we left the beloved figures at the end of “His Last Vow” (or is it “The Abominable Bride”?):  Sherlock, trying to fight his addiction, John and Mary, the soon-to-be parents, and Mycroft as dapper and clever as ever.  But of course there is the Christmas special “The Abominable Bride” that first aired last year, and despite the fact that the creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss wanted us fans to believe it is a stand alone film, it isn’t. So aren’t the previous series.

That’s why “The Six Thatchers” is a totally new twist for the series as a whole and for Sherlock in particular. You see the only consulting detective in familiar scenes in flashbacks (confusing for newbies, a feast for fans) and you see him coping with new situations  and new figures – a baby only being one of them. Of course this changes him, it has to, just because Sherlock is human, no matter what he made anyone believe so far and  a very caring one as this episode unfolds. This doesn’t mean he stops being that high functioning sociopath (with your number). He is as rude and clever as ever. And he is more active in a James Bond-like way.

John Watson has changed, too, as Mrs Hudson predicted on the wedding day: “Marriage changes you”, she told Sherlock, and of course she is right. The couple has to care for their baby daughter while solving crimes together with Sherlock – the two of them against the rest of the world now are  three. And Mary? Well, she is smart and fits perfectly into Sherlock’s world. But you know what’s in the canon.

All in all this episode has anything you could wish for: humour, drama and settings with lots of details that clearly need lots of re watches to deduce all the hidden clues. Benedict Cumberbatch simply is Sherlock, he fits into the belstaff as perfectly as he fits into that iconic role, delivering a brilliant performance in every single second. Martin Freeman’s John Watson as well as Amanda Abbington’s Mary are more than just sidekicks. They are adding new lines to the story that set the path for the still unknown episodes to come. The week till episode 2 feels as long as the hiatus as a whole.

 

 

Bücher meines Jahres 2016

Es ist wieder Zeit, Bilanz zu ziehen  und zu schauen, welche Bücher ich in diesem Jahr gelesen habe. Meine ganz persönliche Statistik zeigt, dass ich 2016 fünf Bücher mehr gelesen habe als im Vorjahr, was vielleicht daran liegt, dass ich die vergleichsweise kurzen Stücke von William Shakespeare gelesen habe. Erstmals habe ich auch mehr Bücher auf Englisch als auf Deutsch gelesen – auch daran ist der große englische Dramatiker schuld und ein neuer Detektiv, den ich für mich entdeckt habe.

Meine Bilanz:
Gesamt: 39 Bücher
Englisch: 21
Deutsch: 18
E-Books: 4 – neben dem mittlerweile in die Jahre gekommenen Kindle und meinem treuen N7 habe ich mittlerweile auch einen Tolino

Klare Leseempfehlungen gebe ich für diese Bücher. Aber Obacht: Bei meiner Auswahl habe ich weder Wert auf neue Bücher noch auf sogenannte wertvolle Lektüre wert gelegt:

Alte Freunde:
Henning Mankell: “Treibsand – Was es heißt, ein Mensch zu sein” und “Die schwedischen Gummistiefel” (beide bei Zsolnay erschienen) sind keine leichte Unterhaltung. In beiden geht es um das Altern, das Älterwerden und den Verlust von Freunden, aber auch von Fähigkeiten, die mit dem Verfall des Körpers einhergehen. Beide Bücher sind Mankells Vermächtnis und weder tieftraurig noch anklagend. Wer Mankell mag, muss sie lesen.

Ian McEwan: “Nussschale” (“Nutshell”). In seinem jüngsten Roman lässt der englische Schriftsteller ein ungeborenes Baby das Geschehen außerhalb des Mutterleibs kommentieren. Und das ist schockierend, witzig und niemals langweilig. Die wunderbare deutsche Übersetzung ist im Diogenes-Verlag erschienen.

Entdeckungen:
Benedict Wells: Vom Ende der Einsamkeit (Diogenes)  ist für mich meine persönliche Entdeckung des Jahres 2016. Die Geschichte um drei Geschwister, die behütet aufwachsen und nach dem plötzlichen Tod ihrer Eltern mit einer völlig anderen Situation zurechtkommen müssen. Wells erzählt eigentlich eine alltägliche Geschichte.  Aber er tut das ganz wunderbar.

Robert Galbraith: “Der Ruf des Kuckucks” (“The Cuckoo’s Calling”), “Der Seidenspinner” (The Silkworm), “Die Ernte des Bösen” (“Career of Evil”). Die drei Romane um den Privatdetektiv Cormoran Strike haben das, was man von guten Krimis erwartet: Spannung, Humor und Figuren, die eine Vergangenheit haben und sich im Verlauf der Geschichte entwickeln. Und Londonfans können die Wege auf der Stadtplan verfolgen. Ich habe die Bücher auf Englisch gelesen. Die deutschen Ausgaben sind bei Blanvalet erschienen. Die BBC verfilmt die Bücher gerade mit Tom Burke als Cormoran Strike.

William Shakespeare:
Wahre historische Hintergründe, Mord, Intrigen, Liebe, Hass und Humor – wer das gerne liest, sollte William Shakespeare eine Chance geben. Ich habe in diesem Jahr die drei Teile von “Henry VI” und “Richard III” gelesen. Wer öfter hier reinschaut oder mir auf Twitter folgt, weiß, dass mein Lieblingsschauspieler Benedict Cumberbatch als “Richard III” seine bisher beste schauspielerische Leistung abgeliefert hat. Die Dramen sind in einer zweisprachigen Ausgabe bei Ars Vivendi und dtv erschienen. Die BBC-Verfilmungen sind als DVDs erhältlich, allerdings ist Richard III (als Teil der Hollow-Crown-Serie) nur auf Englisch mit englischen Untertiteln erhältlich.

 

Benedict Cumberbatch’s outstanding Richard III

Yes, I can hear them. Those critics, those self declared grail holders of every single tradition you can think of in cultural topics. They are about to start their writing software after they had difficulties to survive  “Richard III”, the third part of the second series of “The Hollow Crown”, screened over the last three weekends on BBC Two. After a certain Benedict Cumberbatch got his hands on William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” last year in London’s Barbican those purists had to endure beat after beat: People ran wild! Queued for tickets! Young folks watched a play live on stage for the very first time in their lives! How could that happen? And they still watch it whenever a live recording hits a cinema within reach.

And now it is Shakespeare all over again, three of his plays transformed into three 2 hours films, bringing the bloody Wars of the Roses into living rooms where the audience watched how a tyrant was made. A tyrant in the shape of Benedict Cumberbatch whose Richard III took over the screen  step by step in “Henry VI, 2” until he rules it completely in the defining part of “Richard III”. And he does so by luring the audience into his thoughts, his grief and his rage, leaving you wondering if you should be appalled by a cripple who is so terrible deformed or if you should feel sorry for a man who had been an outsider for all his life. The very first scene where Richard has one of his soliloquies speaking directly to the audience reveals not only his violent ambitions. It also shows that he is a vulnerable human being – naked upwards from the waist, a deformed back, a hand he can’t use – desperately trying to find his path where Richard is only true to his only ally, the audience, addressed directly to the camera in his soliloquies.

“I, that am curtail’d of this fair proportion, deform’d, unfinished, sent before my time into this breathing world scarce made up – and that so lamely and unfashionable that dogs bark at me, as I halt by them.” Richard III, I,1

All these different feelings, the cruelty of a man driven by ambition, hate, haunted by the ghosts of the men he killed are brilliantly performed by Benedict Cumberbatch who always is in control of the audience’s attention, who grabs their hands, takes them on a ride and leaves them crying for a king who died on a muddy battlefield. It seems that Benedict’s performance gets better and better with every new role. He clearly is on the height of his abilities, bringing every emotion you can possibly think of to life within the wink of an eye or the move of a hand. And of course his voice talking Shakespeare’s English –  making it vivid and just beautiful.

So may all of those professional critics analyse every letter, every scene, every move of the camera, may they shout at the BBC for tearing Shakespeare down to the small screen and may they shout at Benedict Cumberbatch for whatever reason they may possible find. One of his faults clearly is bringing a new audience to Shakespeare. If this is a fault, I can find more to blame this man for.

Hollow Crown, Shakespeare and Benedict Cumberbatch

No, I’m not a Shakespeare expert. Far from that. Although I can imagine that reading his works might be the same challenge for native English speakers as it is for me reading Goethe or Schiller, getting the meaning of Shakespearian English is indeed a challenge. And it doesn’t get easier watching a play live on stage or a film version.

Unless you have a production team and a broadcaster that have the courage to  throw two hours of a 400 years old play on their audience, including lots of artificial blood, mud, ancient buildings and a very fine crew of actors to bring William Shakespeare’s War of the Roses to life. The second series of BBC Two’s Hollow Crown has all this. And it has a Benedict Cumberbatch whose Richard (soon to be King in the third episode of this series) goes all the way from an awkward but still nice ish teenager – his first appearance is all cheerful – to a cruel villain ready to climb on England’s throne, killing everyone in his way. We watch a young man who loves and adores his father who considers himself as rightful heir to the throne, a young man who from the very first scene always stands a bit aside, limping with a stiff leg and a hunchback – and is mocked for this and the fact that his birth apparently wasn’t an easy one, leaving him disabled into a world full of warriors.

“This word ‘love’ (…) be resident in men like one another, and not in me.
I am myself alone.” Henry VI 3, V,6.

As if this isn’t enough to harm a man, Richard is an eye witness when his younger brother is killed. His shock and fear is the audience’s because it is all written in Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance and we know that this is the final reason that turns Richard into the monstrous villain.

“And am I then a man to be belov’d?
O monstrous fault to harbour such a thought.” Henry VI 3, III,2

But it is not a villain that is totally disgusting and appalling. Richard is scaring, thrilling, seductive and – surprisingly enough  – funny and you realise you care for a man who admits all he longs for in the end is his brother’s crown no matter how many men he has to kill to reach that aim. But Richard is not only just bad. He’s a man who feels utterly alone since early childhood, a man who knows that he will not find true love because of his deformities.

If it is true that “Richard III” is one of the most demanding roles for any actor, it’s not for Benedict Cumberbatch. Because he brings every tiny detail of that character to life without any visible effort, leaving his audience speechless in front of the telly (or where ever you have the good fortune to catch this film), realising that you haven’t moved since two hours – except for opening your mouth in disbelief, murmuring “Oh my God” every once in a while and totally forgotten that you are watching a Shakespeare play normally considered as difficult stuff.  We don’t know if  William Shakespeare thought of a special actor when writing his play. But maybe you need a Benedict Cumberbatch to make a villain sexy.

So it’s Doctor Strange then

“I’m never bored”, John Watson says to Mycroft when asked what it is like living with his brother Sherlock. The same is true for Benedict Cumberbatch’s fans: When the actor isn’t busy solving crimes as the highly functioning sociopath who will be back in the special “The Abominable Bride” on New Year’s Day on BBC One he dives into all kind of topics – and takes the Cumbercollective on a fantastic trip into the unknown.

On that trip we  learned about Enigma and the Codebreakers at Bletchley Park when Benedict played Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game”. In  “Black Mass” we found ourselves in Boston in the 1970s where Benedict as William Bulger is not only a senator but also the brother of the criminal Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp). We read William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” (again) to prepare for Benedict’s performance at the Barbican earlier this year. Luckily this was not only a once in a lifetime experience but another step in the career of that amazing actor who will be Richard III in the second series of BBC Two’s “The Hollow Crown” to be aired some when in 2016. (Because it’s a three part series, better prepare for it and read Henry VI and Richard III.).

And so it’s Doctor Strange then. A fictional superhero who protects earth from mysterious villains with the help of his own magical abilities – at least that is what I have learned so far. But it’s still time for diving into the unknown world of Marvel, open a new door and proving the fact that Benedict is just fantastic.

Doctor Strange will be released in the UK on 28th October.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet

Theatre and William Shakespeare of course are both very conservative, traditional and old fashioned. Obviously nothing a broad audience can fall for.

Till Benedict Cumberbatch came around.

When it was confirmed that the actor who is not only known for bringing a modern Sherlock Holmes to life on telly, was about to play Hamlet in William Shakespeare’s play at London’s Barbican, the tickets where sold out in almost an heartbeat. A fact his fans were soon blamed for by some media and considered to be the outcome of their irrational, silly behaviour culminating in screaming whenever and wherever their beloved actor pops up. If those authors had done their work, they would have found out  that the Cumbercollective isn’t silly or weird. But most of the authors didn’t.

How disappointed they must be right now, with the “Hamlet” performance in full flow – and no crying, screaming female fans around throwing their bras on the stage. But with an audience of people of all ages, all levels and obviously from all over the world.

The audience I had the pleasure of watching “Hamlet” yesterday afternoon with was well behaved and clearly as excited as I was for an performance I had been looking forward so much for for about a year.

And what a performance it was. Without spoiling anything and without trying to be as educated as other critics, I think that this version of Hamlet is modern without being too modern, traditional without being too traditional and all in all a play that was written for entertaining people, for making them laugh and cry within a few seconds. Of course this only works when you have an actor that is present in every single moment, an actor that dominates the stage even without saying a word.

Benedict Cumberbatch always is outstanding. Watching the best actor of his generation live on stage, rocking the stage, is a privilege and a mind blowing experience that is worth flying around the world for.

 

[Update 16th October: Saw a live screening of Barbican’s Hamlet in cinema and was even more impressed. The camera shows you every tiny expression you simply can’t get in the theatre. So, if National Theatre does an encore screening, go and see it.

Hamlet und die Besserwisser

Besserwisser hat es schon immer gegeben. Daher ist es etwas unfair, sie mit Hamlet in einem Satz zu erwähnen. Noch dazu in der Überschrift. Aber es passt so schön – und ist natürlich nichts weiter als eine Google-Honig-ums-Maul-Schmiererei, um mehr Klicks auf diesen Blogeintrag zu bekommen.

Hamlet passt deshalb so gut, weil es vielleicht das bekannteste Stück William Shakespeares ist, und weil gerade Benedict Cumberbatch im Londoner Barbican Theatre nahezu täglich auf der Bühne steht. Genau das aber scheint für so manche Kulturexperten das Problem zu sein. Denn der britische Schauspieler, der durch seine Rolle in der BBC-Serie “Sherlock” auch bei uns bekannt wurde und zuletzt in “The Imitation Game” im Kino zu sehen war, hat Fans, die keine Kosten und Mühen scheuen, ihn zu sehen. Nun sollte es Beobachtern (oder sollte ich Außenstehenden schreiben?) egal sein, wofür man sein schwer verdientes Geld ausgibt. Und stundenlanges Anstehen für Karten oder am  Roten Teppich, um ein Autogramm zu bekommen, ist nicht jedermanns Sache. Aber sollte nicht jeder nach seiner Fasson selig werden, solange andere dabei nicht zu Schaden kommen?

Das erste Mal

Doch ganz offenbar ist das mit dem “zu Schaden kommen” so eine Sache. Denn noch bevor sich der Vorhang im Theater das erste Mal hob, gab es für kulturelle Besserwisser mehr als genug zu kritisieren: Sämtliche Tickets für alle Vorstellungen waren innerhalb kürzester Zeit ausverkauft. Und das nur, weil die Fans Benedict Cumberbatch sehen wollen. Diese Fans können sich nicht benehmen. Sie schreien, sie freuen sich und brechen schon mal in Tränen aus, wenn ihr Idol lächelt oder gar mit ihnen redet. Schlimmer noch: sie haben keine Ahnung von Hamlet, von Shakespeare, und es soll tatsächlich welche geben, die noch nie (!!!) im Theater waren! Alles in allem sind solche Leute wenn nicht der Untergang des Abendlandes, so doch mindestens eine Bedrohung für die Kultur an sich, was im Grunde genommen genau das Gleiche ist. Schlimm genug, wenn solche Meinungen gepostet und damit in die Weiten des Internets geplärrt werden. Gänzlich unerträglich wird es aber dann, wenn Kulturexperten sich schreibend zum Hüter des Heiligen Grals ernennen (vorzugsweise in einer möglichst elitären Sprache) und über Leute die Nase rümpfen, die sie anhand von Satzfetzen oder aus dem Zusammenhang gerissenen Zitaten zu kennen meinen. Selbstverständlich halten es die wenigsten von ihnen für nötig, mit Fans zu reden – ob sie das Gehörte oder Gelesene richtig wiedergeben ist dann noch mal eine ganz andere Sache.

Was ist schlimm daran, sich für einen Schauspieler zu begeistern?

Was bitte, ihr Besserwisser, ist so schlimm daran, dass Menschen sich für einen Schauspieler begeistern? Liegt es daran, dass es nicht um Fußball geht und es viele weibliche Fans sind? Frauen (ja Frauen!), erwachsene Frauen mit Jobs, Familie, also mit einem richtigen Leben, in dem Benedict Cumberbatch zwar eine wichtige, aber nicht die alles entscheidende Rolle spielt. Die weltweit Freundschaften schließen, sich treffen und bereit sind, Neues auszuprobieren –  sei es eine Stadt zu entdecken, eine fremde Sprache zu sprechen, ein Buch zu lesen, einen Film zu sehen oder ins Theater zu gehen.

Hört einfach auf, anderen zu sagen, was sie zu tun und zu lassen haben, auch und gerade wenn es um Kultur geht. Denn es ist nichts Schlimmes daran, wenn man das erste Mal ins Theater geht, das erste Mal Shakespeare liest oder sieht. Und es ist nichts Schlimmes daran, Benedict-Cumberbatch-Fan zu sein.
