Max von Sydow Interview
Veteran actor Max von Sydow doesn't take on too many movie roles these days, but he was completely intrigued when given the script for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. Based on the best-selling novel, the story centers around Oskar, a high functioning 11-year-old who must deal with losing his father during the tragic events of 9/11. Sydow plays a mysterious character simply called "The Renter," who does not speak one word through out the entire film, yet bonds with young Oskar in a very special way.
Bonnie Laufer from Tribute spoke with Max in New York about the joys of not having to learn any lines, working with his young co-star Thomas Horn and the movie that makes him cry.
