In 1980 Franz Josef Strauss competed against Helmut Schmidt for the Office of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. To prevent this the first Garde German auteur staged an episode film to expose the candidate - mainly by citing speeches, with whom he appeared in public in the course of his political career.

A respectless characteristic of the Franz Josef Strauss
In 1980, the German politician Franz Josef Strauss ran for Chancellor against Helmut Schmidt. He was arch-conservative and considered as un-electable by many people, though he was tremendously popular in his native Bavaria.
This movie showed Franz Josef Strauss in a very respectless way - by quoting him and showing old speeches. Some cinemas refused to show the movie.
In the end, Strauss lost the elections.
