Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The English title of Wallers Letzter Gang is Wallers Last Trip. Accordingly, the film's story is centered around a Bavarian railroad-track inspector named Waller (Rolf Illig). In the manner of Wild Strawberries, the aging Waller muses on his past. He recalls his loved ones, his occasional indiscretions, and his disturbing experiences during WW II. Wallers Letzter Gang is based on Die Strecke, a novel by Gerhard Kopf.
