Drama 1976 86 mins

Overview

Psychodrama with a vengeance: Anna Karina stars in Fassbinder’s first international co-production; another deadly assault on the institution of marriage, drenched in gothic atmosphere. An embittered adolescent (‘they hate me because I’m crippled!’) brings her emotionally estranged parents together for a country-house weekend full of shocking revelations.

Michael Ballhaus’s camera, ruthless and restless, leads us through a labyrinth of lies.
