- Running time93 minutes
A superb, deceptively simple tale of the doomed love affair between an ageing cleaner and a young Moroccan immigrant, which exposes the racial prejudice and moral hypocrisy at the heart of West German society. Inspired by Douglas Sirk’s 'All That Heaven Allows', and drawing on the conventions of 1950s Hollywood melodrama, Fassbinder uses dramatic and visual excess to push everyday events to extremes, achieving a degree of political and psychological truth not accessible through mere social realism.
