Movie Info

Director Rainer Werner Fassbinder uses a 15th century legend as an allegory to the political situation in late-'60s Germany in The Niklashausen Journey. Combining medieval and contemporary imagery, the story follows Hans Boehm (Michael König), a shepherd who believes the Virgin Mary wants him to start a proletarian revolution. Fassbinder appears as the rebellious instigator the Black Monk. Also starring Hanna Schygulla. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey)

Fassbinder chucks religion, philosophy, idealism, and economics in to a pot and lets it cook for 90 minutes. It's crazy but it works.
