Roland Klick পশ্চিম জার্মানি, 1974

Loz Loory's rating of the film Supermarkt

"Midnight Cowboy" meets social reform journalism. Pacing is great, and camera shows grittiness of the whole city, from poor areas to wealthier ones. Excellent characters and plotting. The journalist and Willy dance around each other, never able to let down their guards and establish a helpful connection; the idea of being a good Samaritan is much different than the reality. Great line: "the only thing free is death."
