Synopsis

In a small town in 1957 Bavaria, Schuckert is a corrupt construction magnate. When honest new officer Herr von Bohm is appointed, he attempts to get to grips with Schuckert, and dares to enter the Villa Fink brothel—the true hub of the town’s economy. But he then falls in love with sex worker Lola.

Our take

The final film in Fassbinder’s “BRD trilogy,” Lola is a sumptuous, neon and pastel-coated melodrama made in homage to Josef von Sternberg’s classic The Blue Angel. A brooding, contemptuous plunge into post-war German morality that sharply takes on sex, lies, and capitalism: Fassbinder-style!
