Even though the film was produced in East Germany by the government-funded DEFA studio, the shoot could not be completed and the film was heavily edited and finally banned from being shown on the grounds that it was "nihilistic, skeptical and hostile". After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the film was reconstructed by cinematographer Günter Ost
and presented at the 40th Berlin International Film Festival in 1990. The final version contains some elliptical editing and a few jump cuts resulting from the incomplete shoot, but the film has a coherent narrative. See more
