Ulmer manages to take zero money, unknown actors, a script with more plot holes than swiss cheese and pull you in from the first 30 seconds. And keep you there. I know it seems over the top silly to those who cut their movie teeth on CGI, but the story and the moral are in there. It's also a good look into the mindset of a nation post WWII, in a Cold War. And into the thought process of an Austrian Jewish Refugee. Very simple little film, but kept my attention throughout and it will leave you with many questions swirling around inside. Many of these low budget filmmakers like Corman and Castle and Ulmer gave us much more than newer directors would think possible with precious few dollars. They are worth investing the time to watch their films and study their struggles to produce the best possible on a shoestring. A film does not need $200 million to tell a good story.
