95 min

The films of Reinhard Kahn and Michel Leiner are testimony to the filmmakers’ sheer joy and enthusiasm of filmmaking. Platzwunder is no exception here. Kahn and Leiner use its non-narrative format to play around like two little boys who’ve been given a miracle construction set and are now giving it a try. They mix childhood memories, images, sounds, instants and ideas, some of which they have already used in earlier films, and add new elements. The film’s ending might as well be its beginning and the other way round: We could take the film apart and reassemble it in a different order, like a jigsaw puzzle, thus experiencing ever new, ever different and ever more exciting journeys of image and sound. It is a cinema of unlimited opportunity, a utopian cinema. (...) Kahn/Leiner keep discovering new details, take us to bizarre cinematic worlds, show us protagonists with distorted facts, their hair standing on end. (Peer Moritz, «Cinegraph»)
