Bonanza is a unique cinematic portrait of a desolate mining town. Once there were 6000 inhabitants catered for by 36 saloons, seven dance halls and an immense number of prostitutes. Their motto was get in, get rich, get out. Now there are only seven permanent residents, immersed in their own spirituality, living on a hotbed of accusations, gossip, murder and fear. Unmasking the paradise of freedom as a suffocating hell, Berlin intelligently and amusingly portrays this microcosm of the world with a scale model, five film monitors and only the voices of the inhabitants.
