Robert Kramer shot “Our Nazi” parallel to the shooting of Thomas Harlan’s “Gun Wound”. While a former Nazi war criminal who feels no regret for his acts even today plays himself in “Gun Wound”, Robert Kramer observes this film experiment in which guilt, danger and self-endangerment constantly produce each other.

Fiction or document? Perhaps both, or something monstrous in-between. An old man is kidnapped and interrogated by his kidnappers. The old man is the actor who plays the mass murderer he is himself. The film not only lays bare the protagonist’s biography but weaves connections from National Socialism to the death of the RAF prisoners in Stammheim. Contagious in every respect!
