This film begins with the premise of a silent reproach: The proponents of the Oberhausen Manifesto of 1962 - for many marking the birth of New German Cinema - with their problem-laden work, have stood in the way of a freer, and perhaps more entertaining development of cinema at home. Dominik Graf focuses on some nearly-forgotten outsiders from those times, people like Roland Klick and Klaus Lemke. His views are often contradictory, but inspire a critical re-appraisal of the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies.

Cast: Klaus Lemke, Roland Klick, Werner Enke, Olaf Möller, Lisa Gotto, Stefan Lukschy, Gisela Hahn, Martin Müller, Frank Tönsmann, Artur Brauner, Wolfgang Büld, Mario Adorf u.a.

DOOMED LOVE: A JOURNEY THROUGH GERMAN GENRE FILMS is a documentary full of daring theses; often eagerly polemical, sometimes wonderfully enlightening, occasionally unsound in its combative claims. It is nonetheless a fruitful debate, and a worthwhile re-appraisal of many facts and views on a nearly-forgotten trajectory in New German Cinema, where it was, unjustly, just an episode.
