Frustratingly, I don’t know any German, so I can’t understand a word of this film. Nonetheless, it’s fascinating to see the cards being created.
Part One: in which Hermann Haindl splashes a lot of paint on a large canvas and we zoom in for a close-up of the Star.
Part Two: in which we’re shown the early stages of the Universe, the Magician and the Moon, plus the Devil coming to life.
Part Three: in this, the most action-packed episode, we see Haindl choosing backgrounds for the minor arcana and painting the cups on the 2 of Cups, plus what must be the very first set of cards.
