Plot summary: Franz, despite being engaged to Anna, allows himself to be picked up by the older Leopold where they later begin to cohabit. Despite this new relationship being shaky, they both decide to endure it. Franz’s ex-lover, Anna, and Leopold’s ex-lover Vera both enter the scene forcing the power dynamics of this twisted relationship to be questioned. 

A bit about Fassbinder: As a German writer and director, Fassbinder is one of the most influential people in New German Cinema. His phenomenal creative energy, when working, coexisted with a wild, self-destructive libertinism earned him a reputation as the enfant terrible of the New German Cinema.
