The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Running time124 minutes
  • GenreClassic

Petra, a successful fashion designer, conducts a sadomasochistic relationship with her assistant/lover Marlene until the ambitious model Karin upsets the balance of power. Filmed in long, elegant close-shot, confined to a camp, sumptuous apartment dedicated to erotic pleasure, Fassbinder’s first international success provoked accusations of misogyny. Openly bisexual, the director insisted that currents of dominance and submission underpin all relationships, gay or straight.
