No Mercy, No Future
In an unusual move for a major West German production, this film was not scripted but improvised as the actors went along. It chronicles a limited time period from the life of a schizophrenic woman whose activities are divided between the bed and trying to commit suicide. The woman comes from a wealthy family and for unknown reasons, is never given a real chance at psychotherapy or medical care, let alone medication. Instead she drifts from a Jesus commune, to hotels, to the marriage registration office, all the while looking for a lover who is Jesus incarnate. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a hard, troubling, provocative film, directed with a mix of street realism and subjective hallucination..."
