As a rule, Werner Herzog's documentaries are more unearthly than his fictions. This 1971 study of Germany's deaf-and-dumb population presents its subjects as a privileged class with access to an alternate reality. Herzog shuns the expected tone of social-worker condescension in favor of mystic's awe. A remarkable, unaccountable film, both cold and moving.
