As in most of his films, Vlado Kristl acts as the protagonist in Der Damm. He undertakes the Sisyphean task of dragging stones in a quarry while competing with a stocky porter for the courtship of a beauty. The beauty finally shows her favor to the stocky porter and Kristl turns from a failure to an awkward pessimist. In Der Damm Kristl has revolutionized the abstract form of the eternal love triangle.
