My Movie Highlights of the 1970s (+Watchlists) (60 movies items)

"This is a German classic of director R.W. Fassbinder. I was terribly bored throughout this movie, although Hanna Schygulla gave a good performance. Angst essen Seele auf (Fear Eats the Soul), also directed by Fassbinder, is a much better movie. my rating: 5,5"
