“Augenblicke” is one of those shocking films that manages in a few minutes to penetrate into the depths of our beings, through the brutal and powerful treatment of the ghastly phenomenon of rape. Well-known American writer Jack Kerouac, when talking about the length of life, in order to show how short it is, says that it lasts as a wink of an eye and winking stars. Rape, meanwhile only needs an unnatural wink, without waiting for winking stars. “Augenblicke” is the definition of rape that occurs in a natural blink of an eye.
