  • Peter Schamoni – Schonzeit für Füchse AKA No Shooting Time for Foxes (1966)

    1961-1970DramaGermanyPeter Schamoni

    ‘Two old school friends, both in their late twenties. One lives on his parent’s rural estate and does nothing; the other half-heartedly pursues work as a journalist in Düsseldorf.
