Roland Klick is a legend of German film-making, responsible for the neo-Western Deadlock with Mario Adorf, the tribute to punk White Star with Dennis Hopper and a true classic Hamburg film Supermarkt. But not even four German Film Prizes could shield him from the critics and his colleagues of the New German Wave, for whom he was simply too commercial. He got together with Bernd Eichinger: Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo was supposed to change everything. But the collaboration ended in disaster. Sandra Pfechtel accompanied Klick for three years, meeting compadres such as Hark Bohm, Otto Sander and Eva Mattes. Her film is the first homage to a director who has successfully striven to avoid being pigeonholed.
