"The proof of the pudding is in the eating." --skinny, skinny moustached hairdresser played by Udo Kier. Underlooked Fassbinder gem of utter manipulation. Classic.
There's a longer, 3 hour TV version that I'd like to see, but this edited (by Fassbinder) movie version is still very good. It's the story of a foolish and pathetic civil servant who is cuckolded by his erotically susceptible wife.

This is one of my favorite Fassbinder films. It is quite possibly his sexiest film.
Not one of Fassbinder's best, but I like even his worst films.
Don't we all wish to be seduced with the promise of Greta Garbo curls?
