This is the film which made the greatest impression on me ever. As a young serviceman stationed in West Germany throughout the 1970's & 80's I used to watch a great deal of German Television, to try and understand the German people and their culture.
One night,wife and children asleep, I happened upon: "Ein Film von Rainer Werner Fassbinder"
What a revelation!! Suddenly here was a film which showed all human life in its most passionate, desperate, vital but delicate form.
It certainly made a great impression on me and even now, 26 years later, I can still see, feel and react to each thought, idea aand feeling that coursed through me at that time.
Truly a wonderful film and a genius of a director.
It helped me understand love.
