RIP Michael Ballhaus, famous cinematographor (he filmed the movie Under the Cherry Moon)

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/michael-ballhaus-dead-dies-scorsese-departed-1202029216/

I found an interview with him about his work with prince and their relationship (in german):

I've seen many interviews with him over the years, and he seemed to be a very gentle man. I have tremendous respect for him and his work.

May he rest in peace.

Thanks for the article. What a talented man.

From the article what stood out for me:
- He explains the colour take-outs. The movie was filmed in colourfilm, but with lighting like a black and white movie.
- Prince listened to Schostakowitsch in his limo.

Even if you don't like UTCM as a movie he was the reason that made it watchable because of the great camera work. Rest in peace.

RIP

he did a wonderful job in the visuals of the filming

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world
