Part of the program

Trapped in a loveless marriage and a dead-end petit bourgeois life punctuated by betrayal and humiliation, a fruit and vegetable seller endures a joyless existence as his hopes and dreams are quietly and systematically extinguished. A turning point in Fassbinder’s career, this dissection of rejection and exploitation established one of his great subjects.

In German with English subtitles.

A film by R.W. Fassbinder
