This brilliant updating of The Blue Angel captures the sleazy vulgarity and sheer vitality of late 1950s West Germany. Lola (Sukowa), a nightclub singer and mistress of a corrupt property tycoon, sets out to seduce her lover’s chief opponent, the idealistic new town planner (Mueller-Stahl). Brace yourself for schmaltzy ballads, garish lighting and a candy-coloured world of illusions.
