Cate Blanchett comes to the Berlinale as a power-obsessed orchestra leader and grants an audience for her film “Tár”. Much of what could be said about the conductor also applies to her actress.
Sometimes, on very special occasions, the magic of the film business, suspected behind the scenes, is more than the unattainable, never-fulfilled promise with which the magazines and glamor websites increase their reach. Sometimes she really comes to life. For example, when the door of a luxury hotel built in the Art Deco style of the 1920s opens, you look through a glass front down onto the concrete surface of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, into the gray sky above, and in front of all this grey, the currently stands and shines and shines perhaps the most sought-after actress in the world: Cate Blanchett.
