Early Fassbinder...and, a perplexing piece of rubbish.
If this was made as a joke...then, only Fassbinder and his ass-licking chums are laughing.
A remarkable career by an [mostly] unremarkable filmmaker.
Ricky is a cold-blooded U.S. German contract killer. After serving in Viet Nam, he returns to his home town of Munich to eliminate a few problem crooks for three renegade cops. He inspects his old neighborhood with his childhood accomplice Franz Walsch, and pays a short visit to his mother and doting brother. When Ricky asks the hotel clerk for a girl, one of the cops sends his girlfriend Rosa. However, she falls for the killer.
