Angela [Ashley, editor's note] Ursula Pürrer and Dietmar Schipek are the names of the team behind this film, veteran Super 8 and video pirates, ritual deconstructers of cinematic forms. Rote Ohren fetzen durch Asche, which took them two years to make, employs a rough plot as a framework to be adorned with the artists’ nightmarish designs, painted sets and surreal objects. A pyromaniac named Volley strolls through the night, wantonly setting objects and dwellings ablaze. Spy, a comic book artist and one of Volley’s victims, becomes a violent loner while plotting to exact her revenge. And sinister Nun, Volley’s lover and an enthusiastic consumer of reptiles, is impending red-leather-clad betrayal for her fire-friendly companion, as she morphs into Spy’s accomplice. [...] Lovely stops along the way: apocalyptic depravity, audio tracks full of pulsing synthetic noise, the absolute physical commitment of the performers and stop-motion animation effects.
