Beware of cranes !
19 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Scond movie by the famous German director after "Der Junge TÖrless", this one was mostly influenced for better or for worse(depending on whom you ask) by the French Nouvelle Vague.Almost entirely filmed on location,amateurish playing,and a very minimal screenplay:by accident ,a girl kills her lover she wanted to leave and asks for help to get rid of the body:two young "modern" men come to the rescue,but they are not particularly clever when it comes to hiding the dead boy.

The most interesting part is the sequences filmed in the country ,where time seems to have stood still,away from drugs,violence ,woman's lib and sexual revolution.More a wandering through Bayern than a real thriller (the only moment of suspense occurs when a neighbor wants to help the threesome with their problem),it's typically sixties;music by Brian Jones."From the Rolling Stones" the cast and credits claim;towards the end ,the score oddly sounds like country pop.I do not think it's available on CD for the fans of the group
