„Franzi” is a film about Franzi. What makes Franzi different from other people is that the impulse of her movement does not derive from her own body but is created „from the outside” by the camera filming her. During her actings and sequences of movements Franzi is confronted with the frontiers of her space of life (the screen). The character Franzi and her tragi-comical experiences are the product of an artificial world of images; an ironic fiction.
