The Berlin film underground rises again in this movie written, directed, financed, edited, and shot by Lothar Lambert. One of the main stories is that of a couple looking for sexual adventure through ads in porn magazines and anyone they can pick up - and then the husband decides to become a filmmaker, sending up Lambert's own techniques in the process. The man's insistence on sex and violence leads to some tragic consequences as he is filming his wife and an African lover in an intimate scene. The in-house jokes on the world of filmmakers and the parody of filmmaking by making a film will be appreciated by film buffs, but might have the opposite effect on the unwashed majority.
