Storyline

Kurt Raab, one of the best-known and most characteristic actors from the group around Rainer Werner Fassbinder, died on 28 June 1988 in Hamburg from AIDS. "Sehnsucht nach Sodom" is the last will and testament of his life and his approaching end. Raab is emaciated as he talks to his friend, the actor Hans Hirschmüller, open-hearty and often ironically about his feeling of impotence, his homosexuality and the complete disappearance of his sexual appetite after the diagnosis. He is not bitter and regards the years he worked with Fassbinder as his creative and emotional peak. We also see shots of a solo show given by Raab, looking much healthier, before an empty auditorium. He sings sad cabaret songs and hymns and expresses his feelings. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür
