Rainer Werner Fassbinder Bondsrepubliek Duitsland, 1971

Neither/Nor's rating of the film Rio das Mortes

Fassbinder's "buddy" film? The key may be in the line of dialogue stating that women's repression is present in their behavior, but if Hanna's exclusion from the homoerotic male dyad is the core of the film, it remains unrealized until the final minutes. Light variations of motifs from the Franz Walsh trilogy. The dance between Hanna and Rainer is memorable, moving that it's Schygulla's favorite memory of him.
