Film director: Hans Broich



Menuett is a never predictable or banal feature film, which leaves the viewer maximum freedom of interpretation. And in dealing with themes that are always topical, it immediately takes on universal connotations, while at the same time standing out for its singular and extremely elegant mise-en-scène.

In Highfalutin, the protagonists’ stories seem almost like a nostalgic stream of consciousness. A stream of consciousness that captures our attention from the very first minutes and immediately makes us feel part of their world. And so, the great Volker Spengler immediately becomes a familiar figure for us. A kind of old friend we immediately become fond of. At the Diagonale’21.
