Rutger Hauer and Blade Runner – “30 years ago I saw the future”
Rutger Hauer arrives early at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Milan. There, a restricted number of journalists and students met the deep and glacial gaze of the legendary replicant Roy Batty, the character who went down in the history of cinema with “that” sentence that we have all said, at least once in our lifetime: «…I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…». The 30th anniversary of “Blade Runner”, milestone of science fiction cinema and unquestioned masterpiece by Ridley Scott, is one of the reasons why Hauer was in Milan. In our report, the Dutch actor retraces the crucial moments of that extraordinary cinematographic experience.
