“At a time when there’s an entire genre of tortured (and torturing) geniuses, Roehler’s film wants to constantly play up such an approach and subvert it at every turn.” – That Shelf
“This film vividly conjures up the shabby, cigarette-ashy world: the West Germany of radical chic and revolutionary paranoia.” – Guardian
Director: Oskar Roehler
Cast: Oliver Masucci, Hary Prinz, Katja Riemann, Felix Hellmann
This is the story of a child of his time: The story of an extremely talented and dynamic artist called Rainer Werner Fassbinder who dreams of making movies about the cold-hearted, archaic Federal German society and about the longing for respect and love of the outsiders – foreigners, underprivileged groups, small convicts. His fulminant rise to being one of the most important directors in Europe correlates with his mental and physical fall and his early death.
