Bruno Stroszek, a traveling storyteller who performs in Berlin courtyards, gets out of prison and runs away with his prostitute friend Eva to the United States, where anyone can get rich.

Our take

Reuniting with his Kaspar Hauser star Bruno S., Herzog shot on the fly what became one of his most beloved, masterful Ecstatic Fictions: a warped quest for survival in the land of the free, darkly comical, soulfully tragic, and capped with an unforgettably maniacal finale.
