    Wie frech, Frauen zu zeigen, die sich nicht ihrer Geschlechterrolle entsprechend verhalten, die nur rumblödeln und sich vollfressen, was allenfalls zu akzeptieren wäre, wenn es sich um junge Buben handeln würde. Wie frech, Frauen zu zeigen, die jede freie Minute miteinander verbringen, offenbar - wie Parasiten - keiner geregelten Arbeit nachgehen und stattdessen wehrlose, weil lüsterne Männer ausnehmen.

    For the first time, as it just came to be, I was allowed to give an introduction to a film in the cinema (!) - and then to such a hard-to-describe bastion of cynicism, bad taste, excesses of violence, complete neglect and moral turpitude - the name of the child: "Ex Drummer".
