Synopsis

A dock worker, locked out of his shelter, is forced to wander the streets of Hamburg. In the poorer part of town, he encounters a young woman. He wants to begin an affair with her, but it is not meant to be.

Our take

Roland Klick is the happy reject of the New German Cinema, making bold, adventurous movies, much more like popular genre cinema than the intellectual art-house. Jimmy Orpheus finds the punk-auteur with his characters on the night-time streets of Hamburg, reinventing cinema one jump cut at a time.
