Synopsis

Willi Tobler und der Untergang der 6. Flotte
One of the most critically respected but elusive directors in New German Cinema, Alexander Kluge, helmed this unusual science fiction tale, shot on a deliberately low budget and stylistically intended to evoke the cinema of Georges Méliès. It takes place at some unspecified point in the future, amid an interstellar conflict known as the 'Galactic Citizens' War.' The main character, Willi Tobler (Alfred Edel), loses his grip after his sector gets bombarded, and in a fit of panic, decides to divest himself of all possessions and abandon his family. In a radical attempt to start a new life, Willi volunteers for a position as Chief Admiral of the 6th Fleet, though his new life fails to provide the security he so desires. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
