Handschriftliche Notiz bei Jean-Luc Godard
Theatre director Heiner Müller was also a passionate movie-fan, and had developed a preference for French cinema. Müller took the visual model for his "Lady MacBeth", which was staged by Corina Harfouch in 1982 at the Berlin “Volksbühne” theatre, directly from a figure from Jean-Luc Godard's "Alphaville" (1965), where Anna Karina played Natascha von Braun. This is confirmed in Müller’s handwritten notes regarding Godard, which are also part of the Heiner Müller’s personal library in "Transitraum" (see, Richard Roud: Jean-Luc Godard, Bloomington, London 1970, pp. 44-45).
