Based on Martin Walser's modern classic novel Das Unhell, this German film is much shorter than director Peter Fleischmann's original six-hour version. The book was notable for its complexity, psychological precision, and poetic imagery. The many-layered story concerns how a small town responds to the stresses of modern living: the political changes, social changes, and personal problems which change the nature of their once secure world forever.
