|Director||:||Alexander Kluge, Edgar Reitz|
|Writers||:||Alexander Kluge, Edgar Reitz|
Combining fictional and documentary modes, the film takes a critical stance toward Frankfurt's public sphere and urban redevelopment. Despite the serious formal and political concerns of the film, Kluge's heightened sense of the absurd safeguards a reserve of utopian optimism.
