During the "Made in Germany" tour, Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund filmed two Rammstein concerts in March 2012 at the Bercy Arena in Paris. In the resulting 98-minute film (a version with 16 songs out of 21), Jonas Åkerlund takes a radically new approach to capturing the emotion and thrill of Rammstein's live performance.

We shot two nights in Paris, and we had 30 cameras, so that gives you 60 angles, plus we shot a dress rehearsal for close-ups. That gives you a massive amount of footage. This is a whole Rammstein-show, and I take the footage and cut it with the same precision that I would a 3-4 minute music video. Even with a big crew of editors, it took us over a year to nail down the edit. Looking at it now - that is the strength of this project. It really brings the show alive and shows what Rammstein is all about. I am very happy with Rammstein: Paris. What this film shows wasn't just relevant four years ago - it will always be relevant. Rammstein is a timeless work of art. And even if it might sound a bit pretentious, I'd like to say that I don't think that this level of precision will ever again be attained in a concert film. The film is unique.

Later this year, the complete version of the concert (21 chansons) should be released on Blu-ray and DVD. A must-have for all fans.
