MAGDALENA JUNG can fly and does so without much ado. All attempts to find out how, all imitations are doomed to failure. Film cannot and indeed should no longer be regarded as an reproduction of reality or a single idea. Film is autonomous (and multivalent)! Its principle rule is to act without rules. WHAT HAPPENED TO MAGDALENA JUNG deals playfully with the illusory power of cinema, with „film as a wonder thing“.
Along with PHANTASUS MUST CHANGE and TUNGUSKA – THE CRATES ARE HERE, the film is part of the “Trilogy on Film Criticism”.
