anarresti's rating of the film Wo die grünen Ameisen träumen

We have to remember that Herzog has said that he does not understand irony. "For me a chair is a chair. A man is a man". This is a beautiful film, in the marvelous way it presents the clash of cultures. And the humour is up to us. Our own culture is free to interpret, to fill in the voids and laugh where it sees ridicule. And laugh of both sides. Culture needs a place. The most important part of the tile is "Where".
