Review

This is inter-racial romance in the most taboo way: He's black, she's white; he's a young stud, grandma is 20 years older; he's Moroccan, and she's German! This is instant formula for a doomed relationship, but not so. As much as the two needed each other, used each other, they needed the very disgusted people around them to verify their love. In their best moments, they show the very human weakne... read more

A good movie

Honestly, I have to admit it that I haven't seen many movies directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder so I cannot really judge his work (at least, the situation is not as bad as with Andrei Tarkovsky as I haven’t seen anything directed by this great maste). Anyway, this flick is the one I have seen which made the best impression on me. Indeed, if I remember correctly, I saw it when I was living in E... read more

"February 8th Directed by: Rainer Werner Fassbinder The plot is very minimal, as is the rest of the movie, which is really nice. I didn't think about this while watching it, but it seems like you could watch the whole thing without understanding what anyone was saying and still understand what was going on. This is said to have been inspired by Douglas Sirk's All That Heaven Allows and coming off of Funny Games, the remake-iest thing ever it's nice to see someone get creative with an idea. If I"

"28.11. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Rainer Werner Fassbinder Emmi, a 60-something cleaner woman stumbles into a bar to shelter from the rain and falls in love with an Arab man. Eventually they get married which is not to everyone's liking. The film paints a very real, xenophobic picture of post-Munich-tragedy Germany. Everybody around Emmi seems to despise and forsake her. Out of jealousy, out of fear, out of hate - the reasons are not stated, which I liked. It's the turn the film takes after"

"8.10. DVD Erittäin minimalistinen ja yksinkertainen, mutta silti niin suuri, hieno ja vielä 40 vuotta valmistumisensa jälkeen yhtä ajankohtainen elokuva. Kaikki on tunnelmaa ja 70-luvun värimaailmaa myöten kohdallaan ja Fassbinderin sikaroolille nauroi kippurassa."

"Tarina vanhemman naisen ja tätä runsaasti nuoremman arabimiehen suhteesta tarjoaa Fassbinderille hyvät puitteet runsaalle sielunmurskaamiselle, mitä tarjoiltinkin sitten yllättävän vähän. Siitäkin huolimatta erittäin minimalistinen tarina onnistuu kertomaan paljon lyhyessä ajassa ja pienin tehokeinoin."

"26.6. Rehellisyydessään, kaunistelemattomuudessaan ja pienessä kömpelyydessäänkin niin tavattoman pysäyttävä filmi, että tässä joutui taas vaihteeksi liikuttumaan todella syvästi. En pysty jälkikäteenkään sanomaan tästä mitään rakentavaa, kaikkien pitäisi vain katsoa tämä."
