Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1986
Running time:127 minutes
Cast:Christian Heinisch, Nazzareno Bianconi, Mario Adorf, Laura Betti, Harun Farocki
Director:Jean-Marie Straub/Danièle Huillet
Writer:Franz Kafka

Description: Financed in Germany and filmed in New York, Class Relations is adapted from Franz Kafka's unfinished novel Amerika. Christian Heinisch plays a bourgeois German forced to leave his homeland after a scandal. He accepts his uncle's invitation to move to America, where he takes a succession of Joe Jobs. Heinisch tries, but he is unable to shake off his old-world customs. Worse, the class structure in Europe never prepared him to have to actually use his hands to make a living. Rather than tack on an ending of their own, writer/directors Daniel Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub conclude Class Relations in the same manner that Kafka left Amerika behind when he died--with the hero's ultimate fate still in limbo.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
