In Praunheim it's not the cinematic act what might interest but above all the attitude towards it, or more precisely, the performance before a camera that aims to unravel and redirect the gesture to an idea of the event in the face or the happening. Not being a great German director, he's a major instigator and, in this sense, he got a primitive kind of enchantment as some New York avant-garde of the 60s.
