“The New York Times considered this work as ‘documentary filmmaking at its most […] laissez-faire’. Indeed, the film was made spontaneously without any financial means by a director who was well prepared. Wolf-Eckart Bühler found [Sterling] Hayden on a barge in France to obtain the film rights for his autobiography Wanderer. He had taken the corresponding screenplay with him, which prompted the former Hollywood star to invite him to a quick documentation. The result was a merciless portrait, miles away from others. A fairly unique, intense document in film history (Alf Mayer).
