"Werner Herzog turned a jaundiced eye on the United States — "the most exotic country in the world," according to the director — in STROSZEK, his second film (after THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER) to feature the strange, singular screen presence of non-professional actor Bruno S. Subtitled "A Ballad," Herzog’s bitterly ironic, highly comic road movie chronicles the misadventures of three Berlin misfits — an ex-con (Bruno S.), a sex worker (Eva Mattes), and their elderly neighbour (Clemens Scheitz) — who set out for the Promised Land of America. What they discover is the grim reality of Railroad Flats, Wisconsin, where an American Dream of mobile homes, color TVs, and junk food quickly turns sour. The evocative, metaphysical use of landscape for which Herzog’s films are noted is very much in evidence. A dancing chicken makes an unforgettable appearance. Essential Herzog." (Promo Copy)
