Stroszek by Werner Herzog (1977)

Bruno Stroszek is released from prison and warned to stop drinking. He has few skills and fewer expectations: with a glockenspiel and an accordion, he ekes out a living as a street musician. He befriends Eva, a prostitute down on her luck. After they are harried and beaten by the thugs who have been Eva's pimps, they join Bruno's neighbor, Scheitz, an elderly eccentric, when he leaves Germany to live in Wisconsin. In that winter bound, barren prairie, Bruno works as a mechanic, Eva as a waitress. They buy a trailer. 

Directed by Werner Herzog

Based on boojk by Werner Herzog

Stars: Bruno S. Eva Mattes Clemens Scheitz

David Lynch is an admirer of the film, and has called it his favorite work of Herzog's.

The entire crew disliked the last sequence so much that director Werner Herzog had to shoot it by himself. Incidentally, he considers this scene the best he has filmed.

The story was inspired by star Bruno S.'s own life, though mainly the Berlin portion of the film.

The film is included on Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" list.
