July 1, 2009, 10:45 p.m., Portrait of Vicco von Bülow (aka Loriot) for "Deutschland deine Künstler"
Die Welt (July 1, 2009)
"The not inconsiderable achievement of this quiet, intimate portrait by Claudia Müller, tonight on ARD, is the way it manages to reveal new aspects of the man behind the mask ..."
"The film portrays von Bülow as a wolf in sheep's clothing, who made the German bourgeoisie laugh at themselves by holding up a mirror as accurate as it was playful."

Abendzeitung München (July 3, 2009)
"The second season of the ARD series "Deutschland, deine Künstler" got off to a glorious start with Claudia Müller's ... portrait of Loriot.

Ostthüringer Zeitung (July 1, 2009)
"The man's delicate humor and the absolutely perfectionistic composition of his satires have no equal. And the painter of this portrait, Claudia Müller, approaches her task with a kindred sensibility and a similar eye for the whole ..."
"The big advantage of this Loriot film over others is that it's more than just a compilation of the laurels of others, e.g. the master himself. Unobtrusive documentation and an economy of interpretation are the strengths of this self-contained film about an artist's multifaceted and multilayered life. Innovative editing, a comfortable pace and a minimum of unnecessary flattery make it a refreshing late-evening experience. Even documentaries can be a lot of fun when they're put together like this one."

"Elke Heidenreich: Ganz so leicht muss es auch nicht sein" on SWR/Arte
Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung (April 15, 2004)
"Sympathy and humor (and books) inform not only her life, but also the film Claudia Müller has made about her ..."
"Elke Heidenreich opened her heart for this film. Perhaps she tried to close it, to no avail. At any rate, half-hearted wasn't an option. She reports personal, even intimate details ..."
"Heidenreich is worth reading, worth seeing, worth hearing. She'll forgive us for watching this portrait on TV instead of reading a good book."

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (June 24, 2004)
Claudia Müller's cinematic portrait doesn't gloss over suffering and illness, but it doesn't do well on them either. ' I'm the cup with a crack in it,' as Heidenreich dispassionately puts it. They're famous for lasting the longest ..."
"The credibility and vitality of its protagonist carries the film all the way to Lebanon, where, together with photographer Tom Krausz, Heidenreich is gathering impressions for a new book project ..."
"What sets Heidenreich apart, and what the film shows - vividly but not luridly - is her spirit."

Kölner Stadt Anzeiger (May 14/15, 2005)
She's the cracked cup that lasts forever, says Cologne-based writer and journalist Elke Heidenreich in Claudia Müller's long-overdue portrait, which encapsulates the career of the most influential woman in German television today ...
Highly recommended."

Brigitte (May 8, 2004)
"This wonderful documentary by Claudia Müller takes us behind the scenes at Cologne's Children's Opera, where Elke and her guests have spent the past year promoting a passion for reading ...
"By and large, this TV portrait is a very personal one: ' I've turned my life completely inside out in the last few years,' says Heidenreich.

Portrait of Hape Kerkeling for "Die Besten im Westen"
Kölner Stadt Anzeiger (Nov. 4, 2005)
"The portrait painted by Müller is of an open-minded and curious artist, whose life has been nowhere near as smooth as it might seem ... The film presents a complete and finely drawn picture of a relative unknown who viewers are happy to invite into their living rooms."

Portrait of Jim Rakete for "Ma vie"
Berliner Zeitung (Jan. 21, 2008)
"There was plenty of praise at the premiere for this humorous 50-minute documentary ... Rakete on Müller: 'She shows how people feel when they're being photographed.'"

Rheinische Post (May 29, 2008)
"Jim Rakete was interviewed by Claudia Müller. She's the director who's making a splash with her cinematic portrait of Rakete."

Portrait of Elke Heidenreich for "Höchstpersönlich"
Süddeutsche Zeitung (Feb. 15, 2008)
"Claudia Müller's report for the Radio Bremen TV series "Höchstpersönlich" seems at first like an ad for Heidenreich's hit literature series on ZDF, but it reveals less well-known aspects of the dynamo from Essen as well - and counts Frankfurter Allgemeine publisher Frank Schirrmacher as an admirer ...
But most touching of all is the confession that her radiant vitality conceals a feeling of 'fundamental futility and melancholy.' That makes this film more believable than many others."
