Director Werner Herzog delivers poetic juxtaposition and melancholy cynicism in this grim tale of three displaced Germans seeking a new life in rural Wisconsin. Stroszek (Bruno S.), a destitute ex-con, and Eva (Eva Mattes), a luckless prostitute, are plagued by misery in their home of Berlin. When Stroszek's neighbor immigrates to Wisconsin, the couple follows but finds that the bleak landscape of a depressed Midwest offers little hope or solace.
