30 hand picked films. A new one every day
The lackluster and plodding Bolweiser has the (mis)fortune to be married to the town’s siren; his trusting nature leads him into serious trouble when she beds nearly every available guy.
"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.
