How to Live in the German Federal Republic constitutes an oddity: a mock-documentary satirizing West German life, from the perspective of a leftwing (pro-Communist) East German filmmaker. The director in question, Harun Farocki, constructs a series of 32 short scenes, uniformly set in West German instructional and training classes, that show various tasks among the citizenry being done solely as the result of exhaustive preparation - everything from women preparing to give birth, to strippers stripping, to policemen making arrests. Farocki uses the material to savagely dissect the West German mode of life. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
