Synopsis

A poor army private (Klaus Kinski), haunted by nightmares of impending destruction, is forced to take part in a scientist's food deprivation experiments in order to support his wife (Eva Mattes) and child. However he becomes convinced that she is having an affair with a drum major and stabs her to death. Werner Herzog's film covers familiar territory for the German director: examining man's struggle with the world around him, as viewed through the eyes of an outsider figure abused by society and persecuted by nature. Also included is Herzog's gothic film about a nomad with magical powers who has the secret of making a unique and precious glass, 'Heart of Glass'.
