short description of plot, summary of technical devices employed
12 December 1998 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

A slice-of-life vignette about life in poverty stricken Weimar- era Germany. A man wins some cash in a dice game in a low grade beer hall. He in pursued by a thug through the streets of Berlin, and escapes into the arms of a prostitute, only to find himself narrowly avoiding being murdered by her pimp. Once back out on the street he falls victim to the thug. The film makes extraordinary use of bizarre camera angles, fast Russian-style editing and contains a dream sequence which is distorted through use of mirrors and refracting lenses.
