Ralph Fiennes salutes you in Berlin

Ralph Fiennes (left) flashes his blue eyes as he gives a friendly salute on the red carpet at the Berlinale -- that is, the Berlin International Film Festival -- on February 14, 2011. With him is Dieter Kosslick, the journalist and film critic who was the director of the Berlinale at the time, and who seems to be dressed for some very heavy winter weather. The occasion was the premiere of Ralph Fiennes' film Coriolanus, the Shakespearean tragedy that does not end at all happily. Ralph Fiennes was born in 1962, so he turned 49 the year this photo was taken.
