CGiii Comment

Neither the friendliest nor the happiest people in the world...make for a thoroughly dull experience.

An 'intellectual' study of hideous people.

It is really just a load of dirty pants.

Loveless, deceitful and pointless.

There is no excuse - far superior films were made in the 60s - was Fassbinder a genius?

According to this - no.

The(ir) Blurb...

In this unflinching German drama by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, a group of young slackers, including the couple Erich (Hans Hirschmuller) and Marie (Hanna Schygulla), spend most of their time hanging out in front of a Munich apartment building. When a Greek immigrant named Jorgos (played by Fassbinder… More), moves in, however, their aimless lives are shaken up. Soon new tensions arise both within the group and with Jorgos, particularly when Marie threatens to leave Erich for the outsider.
