At the end of November 1974, a friend from Paris called Herzog and told him that Lotte Eisner was seriously ill and would probably die. For Herzog this could not be, German cinema could not do without her. So, he went on foot to Paris, convinced that she would live. This book reports that journey, from Munich to Paris. Werner Herzog is the director of many films including "Nosferatu", "Wozzeck", "Aguirre, Wrath of God", "Fitzcarraldo" and "When the Green Ants Dream".
