A minor celebrity in Germany by virtue of 2002 autobiographical tome “Multicolored Shade and Bats: Lives in Another World,” Axel Brauns has a concise motto: “Sein Sein sei sein,” which trans-lates as “His Being is His Being.” This is emblematic of his admira-ble determination to be socially accepted on his own terms. To that end, Brauns branches out into filmmaking, which suits his sense of order and structure. Pic’s impact is muted by the odd deci-sion to not actually show any of Brauns’ four completed films in their entirety, even though each is only a few minutes long. Glimpsed shots from the 2006 comedy “Chlueppli” suggest confident visual mischievousness. Tech package is clean and crisp.
