"Gods of the Plague"
Directed by Rainer W. Fassbinder
Fassbinder's third feature, about a petty criminal who
plans to rob a supermarket, only to be betrayed by the two women who love
him. "Fassbinder's gangster film doesn't happen on the level of black
limousines, bursts of machine-gun fire, blinking blondes and detective
brilliance; it uses more lower-class people and shoplifters; 'little' girls
who do all that for love of the great glamour" (Goethe Institute).
With Hanna Schygulla, Harry Baer and Margarethe von Trotta. German with
