Storyline

Achternbusch's tragic comedy begins with the figure of the Comanche (Achternbusch) lying comatose in a large country sanatorium, where he is the last surviving patient. Refusing to wake up to a loveless world, the Comanche prefers his own dreams-filled with images of tropical Sri Lankan landscapes, elephants roaming the jungles, and smiling native girls-to life's sad realities. His doctor manages to extract these dream images from his patient with a video unit, which the Comanche's wife records and sells to television. After awakening, Achternbusch's obstinate protagonist shifts (in a punning transformation) from comatose to Comanche and wanders Munich in full Indian regalia until, at last, the real world beckons him back onto the soccer field of the Olympic Stadium. Written by Alun Gowan
