The story is somehow dark: An actor looses himself in a painful process of rehearsing a nazi-drama, while surrounded by self-absorbed wanna-be-writers who drift in the nomansland between fascistic intellectualism and alcohol, talking crap perpetually.
It seems like the troubled protagonist is the only person left who is aware of the absurdity and cynicism of our society, and the only person that is able to feel at all, but all he feels is pain and frustration. The tension of the movie gets more and more dense, with an atmosphere of violence in the air, till it finally culminates in an enigmatic ending, reminding of Tarkovsky.
On the other hand there are a lot of intriguingly funny scenes, irony, some great acting & some stunning amateur actors, a tatse of cinema verité and dogma and finally a cool musical score.
In my opinion the german indie-move of the year!
