Pioniere in Ingolstadt Pioneers in Ingolstadt ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A group of military engineers and soldier/laborers arrive in the small town of Ingolstadt, where they will begin the construction of bridge linking it directly with the rest of the country. Alma and Berta are housemaids who see the soldiers as more than a distraction: Berta wants desperately to believe in love, and Alma doesn't believe it can exist. The soldiers are bored, boozing and brawling during their free time, and coldly calculating about the improbability of love. Adapted from a 1929 play by Marieluise Fleisser, the film takes place in Fassbinderland: the Pioneers appear to be young Nazis, Alma's hairstyle and dresses are from the 1940s, but Berta's minidresses are decidedly from the late 1960s. Despite or perhaps because of the arrival of the Pioneers, Ingolstadt's inhabitants seem to be cut off from--yet still part of--the rest of the world, as if the town is encased in glass

"Cross of Iron" follows a platoon of retreating German soldiers on the post-Stalingrad Eastern Front in 1943, as they are overrun in a Soviet armored assault and trapped behind enemy lines. Sgt. Steiner is a bitter but resourceful vet whose only concern is for his men. Captain Stransky is a smug wealthy Prussian aristocrat who yearns to win the Iron Cross and will stop at nothing--short of actually exposing himself to combat--to get it. During an attack on their compound Stransky cowers in the bunker, but reports that he led the counterattack. Steiner refuses to confirm that to the colonel, so Stransky schemes to eliminate the platoon by leaving them stranded on the field. For Steiner and his men, there are no illusions--just the dim hope of helping each other to somehow survive the carnage

In the near future, a cybernetic company designs a supercomputer that simulates a world populated with "identity units" programmed with artificial intelligence that will predict human behavior in the real world. When the lead designer commits suicide under mysterious circumstances, his successor, Fred Stiller (Klaus Lowitsch), takes on the job, but soon faces his own mental breakdown when strange events and logical inconsistencies begin to haunt him. Is the stress and psychological nuance (intensified when his employer flirts with covert interests) taking its toll, or is he on the verge of a deeper and more unsettling discovery?

The noir-spiked tale of a reluctant action hero, Fred Stiller, a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate conspiracy. At risk? Virtual reality. Originally made for German television, the recently rediscovered three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the weird world of tomorrow from one of cinema's kinkiest geniuses. It's a gloriously paranoid, boundlessly inventive take on the future from German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder
