Klaus Kinski, Werner Herzog, Claudia Cardinale, Mick Jagger.
The celebrated German filmmaker Werner Herzog revisits his turbulent and legendary love-hate relationship with actor Klaus Kinski, which was utterly puzzling to outsiders and yet survived five films together and mutual death threats. Using clips of Kinski's excesses and revisiting old haunts, Herzog paints a stirring picture of his departed comrade.
