Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
in a bleak Munich apartment complex, this film follows the aimless young
residents and the dramatic changes in their behavior that are sparked by the
arrival of a Greek immigrant, played by the writer-director himself. "Using
direct sound, limited dialogue and camera movements, he penetrates to the
heart of xenophobia" (The Faber Companion to Foreign Films). With
Hanna Schygulla, Lilith Ungerer, and Elga Sorbas. German with English
subtitles. 88 minutes.
