CGiii Comment

Stick a group of bad actors in a room and film them...being bad actors...that's Fassbinder in a nutshell...here's the proof.
 
Some call it a self-parody, some say it is a funny take on Resnais' Marienbad...the imaginations of these pseudos are really intriguing...

A comedy? There are more laughs to be had in a vivisectionists lab...yet an other example of Fassbinder's plethora of cinematic junk.

The(ir) Blurb...

On a film set there are two things missing, the film material and the director. So the actors and actresses as well as the crew try to make the best out of the situation. When the director arrives the material is still missing and so they still wait and try to make the best out of the situation. When the material finally arrives all folks involved into the film find themselves in a weird situation. Jealousy, competition and despair are ruling. Nobody seems to be able to break through this atmosphere, so they all still try to make the best out of the situation, but this is probably not the way to finish the film.
