Rainer Werner Fassbinder 4 DVDs 15

£19.99

Product description

Rainer Werner Fassbinder 4 x DVDs including Fear Eats the Soul, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, The Merchant of Four Seasons, The Marriage of Maria Braun.

Fear Eats the Soul- A tentative love affair between a middle-aged German woman (Brigitte Mira) and a young Morrocan immigrant worker (El Hedi Ben Salem) threatens to buckle under the class tensions and racism exposed by their relationship. Modelled upon Douglas Sirk's 40s' melodrama 'All That Heaven Allows', Fassbinder's film offers a dispassionate dissection of the social pressures and racial hatred apparent in 70s Germany, as well as a realistic assessment of a relationship suffering from its own internal contradictions.

The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant -Rainer Werner Fassbinder writes and directs this German drama based on his own play. Fading fashion designer Petra von Kant (Margit Carstensen) celebrates her birthday by receiving a succession of female acquantainces to her apartment, all of whom have contributed to her teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

The Merchant of Four Seasons -Set in 1950s Germany, a young man, Hans, decides to set up in business as a fruitseller. His family at first surprise him by not giving him any encouragement, but surprise soon turns to frustration and embarrassment as the people he cares about start making his life more and more complicated. Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

The Marriage of Maria Braun -In 1943, an air raid hits Maria (Hanna Schygulla) and Hermann Braun's wedding ceremony, indicating what is to come for them. During and after the war, Hermann goes missing on the Russian Front, serves a jail sentence and emigrates to the U.S.A. Maria, meanwhile, builds up an industrial empire alone. Together with 'Lola' and 'Veronika Voss', this forms Rainer Werner Fassbinder's 'West German Trilogy', a series of films offering comment upon the reconstruction of the Federal Republic after the war.
