Die Beschaffenheit eines Astes

 
In a rush of text and images the film struggles with the death of Ödön von Horváth, who was killed by a falling branch in the moment of his greatest success when he was deliriously happy. In dense and overflowing metaphors the film weaves absurd ideas and fantasies around the obsession with Horváth’s death.
