Warnung vor einer heiligen Nutte

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1971

David Grillo's rating of the film Beware of a Holy Whore

Nobody combined the personal and the professional more successfully than Fassbinder he was a caretaker for his crew and his actors and as caretaker he could abandon them at any moment but it also hurt him the most. Hanna Schygulla was never more fragile than she was here in this role.
