    • Synopsis
    • Bodo Hell struggling with the dimensions: The writer breaks out of his world of words and tries to penetrate the surface of Austrian picture postcards in order to get into the very body of the landscape. He slips into a postcard picture, wanders through a labyrinth of cliché pictures, and embarks on a high-speed race through mountains and valleys at 160 postcards per minute. At the end Bodo succeeds in imagining a landscape himself, and even in entering it; but during his leap into the body of the landscape he loses his corporeality - the poet is reduced to the flatness of a two-dimensional figure on a picture and is left at the mercy of the wild landscape.
