With the subtitle "A German Adventure" Alf and Bernd tried to relieve the movie and the "New German Cinema" from the "collective responsibility" complex that had caused a stagnation with themes like: "The sins of the fathers shall be visited on the sons". The fact that they were both friends and also descendants of diametrically opposite social classes, one from an old family of industrialists and the other the son of an aviator, was a big help to me. The shooting was an adventure for me too, but also an opportunity to immerse myself in the old and new Germanic self-consciousness.

In my folders I found unfortunately only sketches of scenes or the main characters and not a single construction plan.

On Bernd's site there are lobby cards and some scenes, focused naturally on the stars in the cast.

I have added only a few scenes and frames from a poor PAL copy without subtitles.
