Stroszek in November
Anchor Bay UK have announced the Region 2 DVD release of Werner Herzog's Stroszek for 15th November 2004 priced at £16.99. After being released from prison, Berlin street musician Bruno Stroszek (Bruno S.) finds himself lost in a world where he simply doesn't belong. So along with his prostitute girlfriend (Eva Mattes) and an eccentric neighbour (Clemens Scheitz), Stroszek moves to America, where he's told everyone is rich.
It doesn't take long, however, after moving into a mobile home and taking a job as a mechanic, for Stroszek to realise that the streets of Railroad Flats, Wisconsin aren't paved with gold.
Featuring a remarkable cast and one of the most bizarre, memorable endings in film history, Werner Herzog's Stroszek is a brilliant tragicomedy which explores what happens when the American dream becomes a nightmare.
