A young dreamer whose blind father runs the bathhouse has convinced his father that the bathhouse is filled with customers. His brother is a ruthless industrialist who wants to destroy the building and erect a futuristic city in its place. But that struggle is soon replaced by the movie's dominant storyline, Anton's falling in love with a beautiful 18-year-old girl. Aside from a few random words, the film is without dialogue, a silent film with musical accompaniment.

This is a 1999 experimental movie directed by Veit Helmer.
The style evokes early 20th Century Silent movies and motifs commonly found in German expressionism.
The sparse dialog is presented in a mix of European languages.
It is quite hard for me to make sense of this movie.
After all it appears like a fantasy in an asylum for the mentally ill.

Wow, this one's a little different. The character's cast over personify they're roles and add a demension to the film while the format/style do as well. It kind of reminded me of a Chaplan or Keystone Cops type format and at times exchange just less frantic and sped up or hurried.
