"This Was Thomas Bernhard"

This is the first of an eight-part documentary by the German channel 3SAT on you-know-who. The English language Thomas Bernhard site has kindly put together a single page with all eight embedded for our uncomprehending viewing pleasure. As Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle once sang, I Wish I Could Sprechen Sie Deutsch.


  1. But if you can't sprechen sie Deutsch, all you have to do is concentrate on reading his lips & all should become clear.

  2. Ah, thank you so much for the link to this! Now I just have to corral a German-speaking friend to sit next to me while I watch it.

  3. I can't believe this hasn't been subtitled yet... Bummer.
