YMMV / Stroszek

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Eva a terrible person for running up the bills and simply leaving? Or is living in the middle of nowhere with two obviously crazy men just unbearable?
  • The Danza: Bruno Schleinstein as Bruno Stroszek, Eva Mattes as Eva.
  • Never Live It Down: The film is notorious for being the last thing Ian Curtis watched on the night of his suicide.
  • Typecasting: Just like in Herzog's Woyzeck, Eva Mattes plays a woman who temporarily has a crazy husband.
  • The Woobie: Bruno and Eva both.
