Robby Müller Biography

Müller was born in Curaçao, then Netherlands Antilles on 4 April 1940. He moved to Amsterdam in 1953. He went to study at the Netherlands Film Academy from 1962 to 1964. Müller worked as a cinematographer on some shorts films before collaborating with Wim Wenders on his first feature, Summer in the City (1970). The two went on to make many more movies together such as Alice in the Cities (1974), Kings of the Road (1976), The American Friend (1977), and Paris, Texas (1984).

Besides his career in the movie industry with Wenders, Müller contributed to both mainstream US productions and independent films. His other work includes the hazy, yellow-tinted cinematography of William Friedkin’s To Live and Die in LA (1985), Sally Potter’s The Tango Lesson (1997), Dom Rotheroe’s My Brother Tom (2001), Lars von Trier’s starkly shot films, Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000), and Jim Jarmusch’s gritty looking films Down by Law (1986), Mystery Train (1989), Dead Man (1995) and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999).
