The use of productive violence is imperative in our human society.
Andreas Kleinert is a highly unusual soul of German cinema.He is one of those few German filmmakers whose sympathies lie with lonely,marginal characters who are trying to make sense of their lives by finding a suitable place in a new reunified Germany.These marginal souls are scared of a Germany where jobs are scare and human beings are falling apart due to lack of human values.His debut film "Neben der Zeit" (outside time) spoke of some marginalized characters whose lives were ruined by economic policies of German state.Andreas Kleinert can be likened to Werner Herzog but there is a risk.The giant of German new cinema movement Wener Herzog is more interested in marginal characters as they are vital for the fulfillment of his eccentric vision.This is not the case with Andreas Kleinert as he uses marginal characters for strengthening the narrative structure of his films."Wege in die Nacht" is a film that brings to mind German expressionism.One can be useful to a society even at an old age.This seems to be the most befitting message of this film."Wege in die Nacht" is the story of Walter,an industrial employee from east Germany who is finding it difficult to live in a post reunification Germany.It is for the first time that violence has been depicted in a positive manner in a German film.This is the principal virtue of "Wege in die Nacht".
