Rolf Dieter Brinkmann was a German poet and writer. He lived mostly in Cologne and died in a car accident in London in 1975.
The new filmed material of actors playing Brinkmann and his family is dubbed over by original spoken recordings of the author and his surroundings. Fascinating material and very convincing acting combine to bring to life this extraordinary icon of German 70s-culture with his own voice: vibrant, radical, obsessive, sometimes desperate, detailed descriptions and accusations of everything and everyone.
Alternatingly touching and funny, the film was for me a great eye-opener to an important personality of German pre-MTV popular culture.
