Strongman Ferdinand

Tense and taut, Strongman Ferdinand remains director Alexander Kluge's most accessible film. Kluge, a master at political drama, chooses a realistic mode, a popular television actor, and a straightforward story to create a timely story of terrorism. Heinz Schubert stars as Ferdinand Rieche, the head of security at an important chemical firm who becomes obsessed with finding security risks. He fabricates threats to demonstrate his expertise and to suggest that he is indispensable, ultimately leading to harsher tactics and tighter enforcement. When the company director questions the need for such controls, Rieche considers the director a risk. Though produced during the 1970s, the film is a suitable fable for our times, when wars on terror have created an atmosphere of paranoia that can be easily manipulated for personal power.
