Thomas Bernhard-3 Days

In 3 Days, the Austrian author Thomas Bernhard is presented sitting on a white bench in a Hamburg park, unsmiling, pinned down like a butterfly, a specimen for our scrutiny. We hear his voice throughout the film, a monologue about his life and works. The result is an overpowering impression of a man with a message, who, like an oracle, pronounces his opinions from his own vantage point.
W. Germany, 1970. English subtitles. Black and white. 52 mins.
