- Synopsis / Plot
- In Werner Herzog's brilliant adaption of Georg Büchner's play 'Woyzeck', Klaus Kinski delivers a wild and stunning performance in a role only he could play. Franz Woyzeck (Kinski) is a hapless, hopeless soldier, alone and powerless in society, assaulted from all sides by forces he cannot control. Abused and tortured, both physically and psychologically by commanding officers, doctors and his unfaithful wife, Marie (Eva Mattes, Best Supporting Actress at Cannes), Woyzeck struggles to hold on to his humanity and his fragile sanity.
: Cannes Film Festival: Best Supporting Actress (Eva Mattes)
