An interesting satire of the "Heimatfilme" and probably the missing link between Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Béla Tarr.

I didn't expect a plot that confusing. I watched it twice in a row and it's like nothing stuck with me and I had nothing to "take away". Extremely weird feeling.

2. Schumacher (2021, Vanessa Nöcker, Michael Wech & Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns, Germany): 6.5 - Watchable docu about one of the greatest non-football athletes Germany have had. Biggest downside is that it keeps very vague what the current condition of Schumi is.

First time I appreciate a performance by Fabrizio Rongione, so just for that, congratulations to Fontana...
But it's also a great movie, a very Hawksian drama reminiscent of Rivette's Merry-Go-Round.
It's very rare that I'm disappointed to see a movie end already, the downside is that it almost ends where it should have started...

Viewed for a second time, this truly succeeds beyond the weirdness of its premise. In his last starring role, Anthony Quinn excels as the elderly protagonist, waxing poetic about the human bonding that orifice sharing brings, and there are some simply uncanny moments as him and his servants move about as one entity - even scaring off armed robbers in a hilarious scene. The bonds that they develop and share feel very real too and this is enjoyably offbeat overall.

Viewed for a second time, this feels so wildly inventive that it is hard believe that it is a pre-Keaton and pre-Lloyd production. Bits and pieces of the film certainly feel silly (being chased; dishes thrown), but the most part this is a droll and entertaining comedy that takes a satirical stab at the institution of marriage and conformity to social expectations and Ossi Oswalda is terrific as the 'doll' (her attempts to sneakily swallow are especially hilarious).

Jesús Franco actually attempts to give both female protagonists well developed backgrounds and personality in this exploitation flick. Certainly, there is much artistry going on as the pair share how they were imprisoned; one of the recounts is frequently infused with neon red, while the other recount most plays out as shadows on a wall that convey volumes. Not quite as successful is the introduction of a new female warden as a blatant voice of morality.

And I believe that makes me the first participant to get something in every country column. :turned:

The basic story is decent here, most notably because the tyrant is not a one-dimensional evil antagonist. On the contrary, it is only after his realises how poorly his peasants think of him that he chooses to become a "devil", and Rudolf Klein-Rogge is well-suited to the role. Outside of his performance though, there is not a lot to write home about. Some of the sets are weird and unusual (but they have nothing on Caligari) and the supporting characters are dull.

13. Sumurun (1920) 6.5 Germany
they built some huge sets for this and it makes the movie look great. Storywise there is not much excitement though and there is a huge accent on a type of humor that I don't find very funny, making it a bit of a long one to get through...

Image
14. Die Insel der Seligen (1913) 5.0 Germany
I read a review stating that this one was probably a lot of fun to make, not so much to watch, hitting it somewhat on the head. I mean, an island filled with gods and mythical creatures trying to teach humans a lesson and/or having a bit of fun is a great idea for cinematic spectacle. But, although the copy available is not in a very good shape so it is hard to give a definitive judgement, it comes across like amateur theatre people frolicing around without much sense to it...

Image
15. Das fidele Gefängnis (1917) 7.0 Germany
Another Lubitsch one and another aimed at bringing broad comedy more than a realistic or dramatic story. Only this time I think it works. The tone is lighthearted, the pacing is right and it is already clear Lubitsch was very ambitious in what he wanted to bring to the screen. These movies are all kinda forgetable (though wonderful timecapsules) but this one was well done

Image
16. Der gelbe Schein (1918) 6.5 Germany
Pola Negri playing a shy Jewish girl unlike the wildcat imago she aimed at with Lubitsch. The setting is historicaly interesting and the melodramatic nature of this has potential, if the resolve of the matter wasn't written so hastily/sloppy. Negri does again capture the attention though, she has that something special.

2 - The Captain from Kopenick (1956) - 7.5/10 - (West Germany) - A man is released from prison after 15 years, but is unable to get work or get a passport and ends up back in prison. When he is released again 10 years later, he finds that his situation is not much improved. This was an enjoyable little film based on a true story.

3 - '38 - Vienna Before the Fall (1986) - 6/10 - (Austria) - A prominent actress and a Jewish journalist are in love and ignore warnings from friends about the threat of Germany annexing Austria in 1937/38. They seem fairly unconcerned about getting out of Austria while there is still time. It's a fairly dull movie, though the surrounding events seem realistic enough.

4 - L'Invitation (1973) - 7/10 - (Switzerland) - Placet is a middle aged man who works in an office and lives with his elderly mother. When she dies, he inherits her cottage and land which is located in a big city. He sells the property and purchases a country estate and then invites his coworkers to a reception at his new home. Things go fairly well, though inhibitions start to loosen after a few drinks. There isn't much action, but the characters make it worthwhile.

This has scattered memorable moments (nails to the eyes; forced coin eating) but constantly feels like it would have worked better as a briskly paced thriller. Tension rarely ever builds with some much time elapsing between the plot highlights, and as the filmmakers resort to including slow motion in some of the shootouts towards the end, the movie ultimately feels much longer than it is. The final scene with the family patriarch is certainly worth it though.

Rudolf Thome - Germany

Image

Dubbed "the most important unknown German director" by Cahiers du cinema, Rudolf Thome is a generally forgotten and elusive figure who came up with the New German Cinema generation, and remained active until the 2010s. Whether he was officially part of the elusive movement is up to debate and he skipped a few beats, including the Oberhausen Manifesto (which was presented by Reitz, Kluge, etc). Instead, he attempted to push "the second Oberhausen Manifesto" along with arguably more respected names, such as Straub & Huillet - though he was something far more explosive in his early days.

Starting out as a film critic and declaring himself to be mainly inspired by the French New Wave and Howard Hawks, he naturally took a similar path to Godard, Fassbinder, etc. in jumping on self-aware noir aesthetics. His debut Detektive (1969) embodies are the BW coolness of his best counterparts, with a free-wheeling atmosphere that just has fun with the medium in a low-budget, semi low-brow and pulpy way. His follow-up Red Sun (1970) pushed the zaniness and stylish aesthetics further with all-out 60s/early 70s aesthetics, though, surprisingly, this would not be the path he would take.

As the 70s progressed Thome started to explore relationships, embraced minimalist, even low-fi aesthetics and would let dialogues (usually between two people) be the driving force in his films. This focus on characters revealing themselves through dialogue and two-way conversation would remain throughout his career, as would his minimalist commitment, but the production values and sensibilities would vary. In the 80s, we got some simply beautiful colour photography, though as that decade started to end we also started to see a re-emergence of pulpy, outlandish plots, even with a tinge of sexploitation - though not too pronounced.

Thome is interestingly frequently compared to Rohmer (a comparison he rejects, though reportedly on the basis of Rohmer involving his actors earlier as opposed to style), and a few films in particular, such as Tarot and The Philosopher in particular carry very clear overlaps, to the point that the characters even watch Full Moon in Paris (1984) at the cinema in the former. While far from a consistently great director(IMO) he is an intriguing director and artist, with a style that is clearly developing and alive, and with a clear auteur-personality.

5. Fremde Stadt / Strange City (1972, Rudolf Thome)

Image

Strange City is a rocked-up yet quiet and slow-brooding noir that feels very close to the early work by Wim Wenders. The characters are enigmas, walking almost as if in a haze. The crime plot is stripped away, the music carries much of the mood and Thome even dares to try to get through a noir without a real conflict or climax. A bold exercise, though it is lacking bit of steam/power or alternatively all-engrossing atmosphere/visuals. 6/10


6. Made in Germany und USA (1974, Rudolf Thome)

Image

Made in Germany und USA is a bit like a lo-fi epic, which lives up to its name by spanning both Germany and the US. This two and a half hour grainy B/W film is mainly composed by discussions, conversations and arguments and explore a marriage slowly deteriorating as its protagonists drift apart. There's a degree of existential toxicity in the manner of which they simply exist, as the proposition of whether or not the couple should stay together is broken down by themselves and in conversations with friends, family and even lovers. The form is slow-brooding, but playful, with an almost Cassavetes-like flow of natural conversation, which could just as easily be improvised as scripted. It is a little rough around the edges, and struggles a little with the tempo, but it truly comes together as a fairly magnificent work. 7.5/10.


7. Tagebuch / Diary (1975, Rudolf Thome)

Image

Diary feels like a continuation and evolution of the lo-fi and intimate style Thome started to explore with Made in Germany und USA. Interestingly, it also explores the very same proposition, namely if a married couple should stay together or drift apart. Once again the love seems largely gone, and we are asked to explore why they are even together and who is in the right. Do they really want to break up? Do they actually have feelings for each other? When her husband asks why she does not want a divorce, Charlotte does not reply that she loves him, but that it is not necessarily the best solution as every relationship would end up the same way. There is a genuine sense of defeat and even hopelessness, and in his frustration, Eduard starts to treat his wife worse and worse in the hope that she will simply leave. Are they unable to actually speak to each other?

What makes Diary a much stronger work than Made in Germany und USA, can be found in both the form and in how this second film simply feels far more human and revealing, with Thome himself playing Eduard. Interestingly, in the previous film, his wife Karin Thome played the wife/lead - in 1975, the year of this film's release, they divorced. Both films cleary come from a place of understanding the inner workings of their relationship, but this film feels earnestly self-deprecating on the part of Rudolf Thome. His Eduard is also an artist, but not a great or overly successful one. He is procrastinating, living off his wife and attempting to create a "factory" to produce art, but yet, all he can get involved is one friend, Otto, along with a friend of his wife's, Ottile. It is however in the interplay between these four characters, usually one-on-one, that the form emerges.

Each scene is filmed in a single shot, and generally, last quite a few minutes as the characters discuss their issues and start to see where they stand and what their desires may be. The discussions are involving, earnest and articulate, very much like the films of Eric Rohmer, and when you add in Diary's scope and progression of time very much similar to that of an actual Diary, the film slowly builds up a strong personal and intimate power that truly should be experienced. 8.5/10.

Note: This very way of approaching the same question and exploring it in different ways, including the potential of different outcomes, is one of the clearest point of comparison to Rohmer.

Note: This is a loose adaptation of the Goethe novel Die Wahlverwandtschaften, which I have sadly not read, but seems to be a great source of inspiration as Thome would readapt it a decade later for Tarot (1986), which beyond the names and basic concept of uncoupling looks, feels and is plotted entirely differently.


8. System ohne Schatten / Closed Circuit (1983, Rudolf Thome)

Image

Closed Circuit sees Thome return to the world of (neo) noirs, as he crafts this slow crime thriller, once again more interested in defeat of the human spirit (as we saw in his 70s lo-fi relationship duology) than the plot itself. The film takes it's time, meanders and places far more time with an almost passionless love triangle/quadrangle than with the crimes or the suspense. If it had been more visually striking or stylized the film may have managed to capture me more, but as it stands it is one of his less impressive from this period, especially in coming out just after Thome's possibly best film Berlin Chamissoplatz (1980). 6.5/10.


9. Tarot (1986, Rudolf Thome)

Image

Tarot is one of Thome's most polished and refined film, with striking yet simple colour cinematography and gentle minimalism set to explore yet another study of "love".

If the character names seem similar to his film Diary (1975), this is because both films are inspired by Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften, though the similarities more or less ends there. Where Diary felt intimate, Tarot feels more intellectually heavy, stylized and despite having a much shorter runtime, heavier - though the self-deprecation may still be part of the films core as the young budding artist has been replaced by a middle aged film director always looking for affairs.

The cast has been placed in their 40s/50s, with the core romantic couple being engaged, trying to give their relationship another go, rather than already being married. The director/writer couple are joined by a male screenwriter, Otto, who may be a better fit for the woman, and finally the woman's niece Ottile, who despite being young almost instantly forms a romantic link with her aunts fiancé.

As with many of Thome's films we are lulled in by a leisurely pace and lightly humorous touches, with action and narrative driven by dialogue. Here, chemistry also plays a major part, with much between the lines. Rather than just exploring uncoupling and recoupling, Thome manages to create something far more cerebral and intuitive, though you will likely need to connect with the stylistic and formatic touches to fully accept the narratives trajectory and climaxes, which are more evocative and thematic rather than realistic. It is, frankly, one of those films I am very disappointed has not been further ingrained in the critical Canon, as Tarot has so much to explore, dissect and discover. 8/10


10. Das Mikroskop / The Microscope (1988, Rudolf Thome

Image

The Microscope is the first film in Rhome's Forms of Love Trilogy, which much like the cycles of Eric Rohmer explores a series of connecting ideas from different angles. Aside from this each film also stars Adriana Altaras in the largest female role.

The Microscope is the straightest and most normal of the three, following a separated couple and their cordial continued interactions and plays with getting back together - while the man also finds a new woman in his life and a friend of both of them schemes to get them back together. Overall it plays like a quirky, lightly stylized comedy with clear minimalist touches and an increase in overtly sexual material. If you enjoyed Thome's previous works this will still have a lot for you to enjoy, but it does feel a little slight. 6/10


11. Der Philosoph / The Philosopher (1989, Rudolf Thome)

Image

The Philosopher is a stunningly shot and aesthetically space and simple film with a stunning degree of evocative power. The atmosphere and lightly comedic touches is very similar to the one developed in Tarot, though here the plot quickly becomes more bizarre as three women pine over a poor Philosopher and attempt to lure him into a love quadrangle, coupled with later (possible) revelations that gives the story a more fantastical dimensions, it just ends up being a little to hard to swallow and just a little silly. That said, it remains thoroughly engrossing throughout. 7/10


12. Sieben Frauen / Seven Women (1989, Rudolf Thome)

Image

It really feels like Thome got a little bored by the time the final film of his Forms of Love trilogy came to be, and feels far closer to a compressed Rivette than Rohmer. The film follows the son of a shady businessman who in the wake of his father's death is sucked into a deadly crime plot with martial arts and, I suppose, a question of true love. It is much lss visual film that The Philosopher, but makes up for it by zany fun - including the 7 women, three generations of women living next door, of which the daughters are true martial arts fighters ready to protect our lead. Perhaps it was just not what I was expecting, and after all, it is entertaining enough, but it feels far too silly and slim. 5/10.


13. Das Geheimnis / The Secret (1995, Rudolf Thome)

Image

The Secret could easily have been a 4th film in the Forms of Love series, including Adriana Altaras in the lead role and has throwback elements to many of Thome's previous works focusing on uncoupling. Here, a man comes home to discover that his girlfriend has not just left him but moved in a woman as a new roommate. Sexual interest ensues, complete with a new partner for the girlfriend as well, and the four of them head for a vacation filled with light humour and nudity. Many of the gentle visual touches and minimalism from his earlier works are maintained, and the films big "secret" is finally revealed when a man who could be the Christian deity Jesus gets entangled in the sexual escapades with surprising consequences that are more quirky than anything else. Enjoyable enough, but far too flimsy. 5/10.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Really happy I finally managed to get my Thome write-ups done, though in the meantime I have seen an additional 11 qualifying films. At my current pace I'll likely have those write-up done by the end of next week... But let's see, I might surprise myself, or break them up in groups. Adding to my one new favourite already listed previously, o.k. (1970), my first favourite since July 2020... I have now caught two more favourites which I can't wait to write about.

I'll skip my new favourites for now, as I want to spend more time on their write-ups, and a couple of other films will be held for a later write-up, but here's my next batch (all German):

14. Passion (1990, Jurgen Reble)

Reble creates a nightmarish tale of seasons, that I just could not quite connect with, though the epilogue, complete with a seemingly real birth in all its gory details will stay with me. I would definitely be interested in revisiting it a few years down the road now that I have read a little more about what Reble sought to do with the work. 6/10


15. Das Millionenspiel / The Millions Game (1970, Tom Toelle)

Image

The Millions Game is a sharp, rough and in-your-face satirical thriller that takes place in a world where reality shows frequently come with a chance of dying, to the point that deadly shows have become a genre of themselves. Within this genre, the titular "game show" is the most extreme. Every month one contestant bets their life that they can survive a full week being hunted day and night by professional killers - with cameras in toe. A game shows gone too fable from the days before game shows arguably went too far, and with a sarcastic, over-the-top mundanity that could just as easily have come from the mind of Peter Watkins (Punishment Park, The Gladiators). It is just all the right kinds of tacky, insulting and self-aware.

What makes it even more impressive is that The Millions Game is a TVproduction in itself, first aired on TV, and beyond showing parts of the production side it would be like seeing the "real show". The dystopian mania is complete with bizarre sponsorship ads for all kinds of sex drugs, not to mention sharp knives, and repeated questions of morality, viewing habits and the conditions that could push someone into taking this kind of deal. The existentialism is ace, it is certainly before its time and it is, for all its comical diversions to audience members and stops for interviews, remarkably suspenseful and tense, without letting that undercut the satire, though asking the question: could this be the future and would you watch it. I can imagine the German viewers seeing this when it premiered and the types of reactions it might have had. Frankly, it has not lost its edge and coming from 30-50 years before Battle Royale, Hunger Games, Squid Game, etc. it deserves to be held in far greater esteem. 8/10.


16. Das Schloß / The Castle (1968, Rudolf Noelte)

A disappointingly flat, though mostly faithful adaptation (despite adding an ending ...and what a simple ending they went with, granted a fitting one as well) of Kafka's novel. 4/10.


17. Lang ist der Weg / Long Is the Road (1949, Herbert B. Fredersdorf, Marek Goldstein)

A fierce social commentary, Long is the Road is an issue film focusing on how years after the holocaust many displaced Jews still live in camps, and while exploring its theme tracks a Jewish family's history from before WW2 to present day. Clearly an important historical document, and coming from a good place morally, while also being very well made, it does suffer from melodramatic touches and the story and character development is a little slim. Even so, it is a very effective effort and should be talked about more than it is. 6/10


18. Absurdistan (2008, Veit Helmer)

Image

A charmingly sexist fairytale, if you could put it like that, about an ex-Soviet town forgotten by all, and the gender war that erupts when the men refuse to fix the sole water source. Surprisingly talky for Helmer (who's best films are essentially silents with sound), this all-out madness is consistently entertaining, and while a lot of the content may be slim or off it is such a great ride that it is hard not to just be completely won over by its silliness. It is a little bit like the style of Amelie if directed by the Quay brothers or a less experimental Guy Maddin. Everything is hammed up, but at the same time beautifully stylized and in a style that makes it clear it is not taking itself seriously and just revels in its own lunacy. 7.5-8/10.


19. Es war eine rauschende Ballnacht / It Was a Gay Ballnight / The Life and Loves of Tschaikovsky (1939, Carl Froelich)

Image

I absolutely love the elegant look produced by 1930s German and Austrian films, with masterpieces like Maskerade capturing ballrooms and dances with pure elegance and magic. This depiction of the life and loves of Tschaikovsky has this same wonderful look and is shot by Franz Weihmayr, who was the cinematographer of both the legendary anti-authoritarian lesbian drama Mädchen in Uniform (which was co-directed by Froelich) and somehow also Triumph des Willens. Carl Froelich himself is also a competent director, though often stuck on weaker dramas and apparent studio fare, like the Ingrid Bergman lead The Four Companions, which he made the year before this effort. In terms of grandeur, he really manages to pack a lot in here, and he almost gets it to greatness on style (and music alone) as he captures some excellent large pieces and the core performances are strong and enticing. A stoic and plastic performance of the scorned husband is an early red flag that the film largely manages to overcome, but when we get to the overwrought climax it is quite clear that this is a good rather than great venture. 7/10


20. Das Gespenst / The Ghost (1982, Herbert Achternbusch)

I had slated in The Ghost before I heard of the passing of Herbert Achternbusch, but the recent sad events made me instantly get on this mad and creative low-budget work. The cinematography is rock-solid, and while a lot of the humour is juvenile, it is also creative and manages to work in some playful satire as well as a Jesus and a mother superior hit the road in a bizarre romance that sees the "42nd God" serve as a waiter and desperately try to find "shit" for the police. The god in question just looks awkward and off-putting, though not without a bit of ridiculous charm. Not quite a good work, but I'm still happy I saw it and it had a lot to offer. 5/10.

:thumbsup: A great, peculiar oddity of German television history. Note that they had maybe Germany's most popular TV host of the time acting as the .. host indeed, and several other known reporter figures acting like it's a real thing or celebrities playing themselves.
