With Reinhold Ohngemach, Peter Franke, the Conrads‘ and Jürgen Kuhfuß. Two actors have a conversation about surplus and unemployment using the DKP catechism while adjusting the valves of their Renault 4.
The Lutz Mommartz Film Archive is a collection of the film works of German film-maker Lutz Mommartz, considered to be one of the pioneers in the film genre known as the "other cinema". Mommartz was born in Erkelenz in 1934 and spent most of his life in Düsseldorf. He began making movies in 1967 and eventually became Professor of Film at the Kunstakademie Munster. He still lives and works in Germany, dividing his time between Düsseldorf and Berlin.

A Brilliant Camp Comedy that will Leave You Gasping for Air.
This rollicking, fun-house of a film will leave you alternately laughing and stressed with tension. Will Klaus and Gebhardt get the valves set correctly? The commentary about the screw driver and it's alternative uses is side splitting! Is the glider going to strike the power lines as it tries to land? The cello and drum combo at the end is hilarious! A rollercoaster of a film and it's not til the very end that you discover whether or not the car will actually run again! Brilliant.
