“Comments” casts a glance at the German digital legacy of our society and is devoted to digital words: Real commentary from YouTube is interpreted and presented afresh in different chapters. Amateur actors embody the protagonists of the virtual conversations and give them human form thanks to the semi-documentary style adopted. This brings the true, yet bodiless events into a reality that the camera can then cover.
