I Will Walk Like a Crazy Horse
France 1973; Director: Fernando Arrabal / 95 min / German. Version / 35mm projection
What a title, what a ride! Here 41 taboos are hurled against the wall and bourgeois morals are twice trampled upon. What happens? Aden is suspected of killing his mother. He escapes and meets the hermit Marvel in the desert, who seems to be mysteriously connected to nature. Aden is enthusiastic and decides to return to the city with the hermit. For Marvel, however, modern civilization, which is alien to him, literally only has ‘shit’ to offer. Fernando Arrabal is dedicated to the surrealist avant-garde, is a master of absurd theater and has mastered the game of the grotesque. With this dizzying shocker he has truly given birth to a crazy horse that seems pointless to tame even after 50 years. The film is served on analogue 35mm – once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
