Jean Tinguely cast a spell with his kinetic sculptures and moving machines—the self-destroying Homage to New York (1960) was one of the most celebrated. Twenty years after his death the bande à Jean—old friends and acquaintances—recalls the life and personality of this revolutionary artist, who was as daring in his private life as he was in his work. (Thomas Thümena, 2011, 35 mm, German and French with subtitles, 87 minutes)
