THE MAN AT THE WINDOW by Robert Bramkamp is a radical critique of social therapeutic and architectural concepts. This short film aggressively commits itself to the cinematic and musical influences of other artists. Residents of a new housing estate in northern Dortmund kidnap the architect. The decisive aesthetic of this film about architectural mono-culture is influenced by the French filmmakers Straub-Huillet; the Dutch band "Four One & Only's" and their title song "Walking in the Woods." THE MAN AT THE WINDOW received the award for best feature film at the Festival International du Film d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme in Lausanne in 1990.
