    A joyfully anarchic and incredibly weird movie-going experience, as twenty-seven dwarfs take over a bleak, post-industrial penal colony and embark on a chaotic wave of utter destruction. Herzog’s second film is a satirical attack on all facets of human nature, positing dwarfism as the condition of humanity as a whole and capturing a moment of pure chaos. It has been cited as both one of the most disturbing and also one of the funniest films ever made. Hilarious, troubling, bracing and outrageous - you will never forget it.
