Clown, The (Ansichten eines Clowns)

Thirty-year-old Hans Schnier still remembers the appalling moral standards of the Nazi regime from his youth. Unfortunately, he detects the same evil trends in post-war Germany. He therefore prefers playing the role of the honest clown rather than adapting himself to a rotten society.
