If you're not taking any steps forward, you're not moving at all.
It is a little surprising that there aren't any posts, but then again, I wonder how many people these days have seen this film.
I'll just point out that it still holds up well, and having read Kluge's powerful story on which it's based, "Anita G.," I was very curious to see how he'd pull the film off. He creates a very different, but analogous texture, in terms of plot, style, etc., from the story, while retaining its essence. (The story's opening sentence is one of the best examples of narrative concision of any story in the literary canon.)
A great film by a great filmmaker.
