German crime writer Rita Falk distances herself in pointed words from the current film adaptation of her novel Rehragout-Rendezvous. “I find the script incredibly flat, frivolous, even cliché in places,” she told Spiegel about the theatrical release of the film of the same name, which can be seen in cinemas as of today. “I’m really sad and I’ve shed a lot of tears over the past few days.”
“I want people to know that it’s not appropriate for this movie to say ‘Based on the novel by Rita Falk’ in the credits. That’s not true,” said the 59-year-old. “I would like to thank Constantine for the wonderful time. But as a writer, I have to stay away from this movie. It is for this reason that she was not present at the premiere of the movie in Munich.
Constantine Film also filmed previous Falk novels, but this time there was not much novel left in the cinema sector, and she asserted: “Even the killers are the same.” She had to distance herself from the movie in order. To protect their reputation, Falk said, leaving it open as to what a future collaboration with Konstantin might look like.
