This Fassbinder film made in a hurry for television is always interesting, even if its non-linear structure is a bit distracting and it also lacks that sympathy that we usually see in his films towards the good-hearted, foolish protagonist who is doomed from the beginning.
Since Fassbinder is probably one of my favorite directors of all time, and since this is the kind of film title that hits me in the gut as soon as I look at it, I'm obliged to give this a shot on one lonely, cold evening.
