Storyline

Walter, a German anarchist poet, is short of money after his publisher refuses to give him an advance. He tries various ways of raising money, including shooting one of his mistresses and relying on the life savings of a woman from the country who is fanatically devoted to him. He also has to contend with his long-suffering wife, his fly-obsessed crazy brother, his other mistress and a police murder investigation. Written by Philip Apps <apps@math.wisc.edu>

Fassbinder's major achievement
15 July 2000 | by (Sassari, Italy) – See all my reviews

This underrated film is, to me, Fassbinder's best. One can look at it the way he likes best, to me was a grotesque fun! the rhythm never falls, as often happens in Fassbinder's films, the actors are apparently having fun while acting, especially Helen Vita. The whole setting is an enormous cage of fools, there's not a character who's really in his mind (except maybe Luise, Walter's wife), mirroring the folly of the intellectual world of the times. "Go work in a factory, you'll feel better", Luise says to Walter who feels misunderstood and uninspired by her mediocrity and ugly-looking appearance. Definitely worth watching, although very hard to find. To my knowledge, the Italian television has broadcasted it only twice and on "pay-tv".
