This movie entails musical theatre, there is no story. It is mostly about music: songs, and suggestive lyrics.
The various scenes nor the lyrics are easily understood.
Rather the show should be watched for what feelings it invokes, it is an artistic performance of IMO the highest level.
The creativity and originality of the director Vincent van Warmerdam has become legendary with the theatre group 'Hauser Orkater'. In Holland the brothers Vincent and Alex van Warmerdam are cult heroes, both have produced theatre and cinematic movies.
From the two shows 'Hauser Orkater' and 'Zie de mannen vallen' (watch the men fall) two elpees were distilled, currently all songs are available on YouTube as well as scenes from the shows are.
Translated subtitles are highly recommended.
To me personally, the music and lyrics have a deep meaning and I've carried the music with me ever since it appeared. The value of it I can not express in words; I have learned by it.
It is poetry in many ways.
