Peter Kern developed his film King Kongs Tränen (King Kong’s Tears) from a critic’s remark, “Please stop making films.” When his alter ego, Peter Gläubiger, meets a critic he unloads all the desire for revenge that he has been building up. And vice versa, she is also looking for revenge – on meaningless art. Meanwhile “everyday” (council block) politics carries on. Trashy aesthetics.
