A wide-ranging, eclectic group of 19 German poems -- from writers including Friedrich Schiller, Heiner Müller and Paul Celan -- are interpreted in an interconnected series of surreal vignettes. In one, a distraught man (Herman van Veen) scours the ruins of a burned-out house in search of his deceased child; this is set to a reading of Hans Arp's "Sophie." In another, a man wearing medieval armor (David Bennent) interprets a poem by Georg Trakl while marching in a Berlin street.
