20 years of l'Alternativa » L'Alternativa Parallel


Herzog wanted to document his crazy relationship with actor Klaus Kinski while they were still working together, but decided it was better to wait until the storm had passed; this ended up being once Kinski had died. Herzog claims they complemented each other; Kinski would never admit it. They made five feature films together and this film explores their love/hate relationship.
