In the presence of Lukas Marxt
"'We can’t use the same light, we have to use completely new keys with completely new light and even these can be found to a limited extent,' says Ralf at one point. The schizophrenic man’s words accompany much of this experimental portrait by Lukas Marxt, layered over footage of Lanzarote, where the protagonist lives in seclusion. (...) Stasis in motion, ongoing but frozen, a painting in time, Rousseau and Tarkovsky, a thought that takes shape in the process of thinking. (...) As if asleep, but more awake than ever, we look at the world, Ralf’s world, in which children are 'built' and lives are 'written,' a 'half-fantasy' and a 'new life' in which the weather is 'recomputed,' like in a movie. Cinematographic madness and a precise portrait of a human being, dancing in the wind of Lanzarote, in the night, in the stroboscopic flickering of a streetlamp, in a completely new light."
- Alejandro Bachmann
