Buttgereit’s Bizarre Project

Posted by Josh Samford On August - 25 - 2009

This is old news that might catch some of you offguard. Jorg Buttgereit is the famed cult film director responsible for films such as Nekromantik, Schramm, Der Todesking and several others. This recent project however, looks to be quite the different sort of affair than what we’ve become accustomed to from the artistic and disturbing Buttgereit. Apparently based off of an old short he made as well as a stage play he has had going, this latest addition to his filmography is a filmed version of that play with a slightly grindhouse twist. The film is Captain Berlin Vs. Hitler, and tells the story of Hitler’s brain returning in a robot body but thankfully Captain Berlin – Germany’s only super hero – is there to save the day. Check out the trailer and prepare to be amazed.
