Clemens Trunschka is a corporate headhunter who struggles with alcoholism. He is forced from the support of home when he must leave the country for work. This sends Trunschka plunging headlong down the rabbit hole & into innermost darkness.Written by
K. (Clem) coming to the village (Houston) trying to somehow contact the powers that be (Ringer) from the castle (Houston Petrol) while being hassled by unwanted companionship (Arthur and Jeremias collapsed into Bob). It's pretty clear where all the ideas are coming from. While being reduced to a bare minimum (women pretty much absent) and stripped off nuances and color.
Bit of a pity that they couldn't muster the courage and make it an entirely abstract location. Specifically that stereotype of the exceedingly talkative yet somewhat naive American strikes me as boringly lazy. Even though very (!) charmingly done by Garret Dillahunt.
Not a bad film, by no means. But in no way original or memorable either.
