Movie Info

Jorgos (Rainer Werner Fassbinder) is a Greek immigrant in Germany who encounters the intolerance of the locals against foreign workers. Open hostility turns to violence when he is beaten up by the authoritarian thugs after dating a German woman. Male and female nudity along with hetero and homosexual sex scenes are shown in this searing indictment against prejudice and fascism. This feature took the Prize of International Film Critics at the Mannheim Film Festival in 1969. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Katzelmacher

One of Fassbinder's first films is this cynical story that, even though not remarkable, was already an early indication of his talent as a filmmaker - something visible in the way he combines the naturalistic style of the Nouvelle Vague with a detached, Brechtian mode of acting.

Fassbinder is clearly much more comfortable here as he deals with xenophobia and repression.
