Set in the 1950s, Fassbinder’s late, great masterpiece centres on the relationship between a young sports journalist and an ageing movie star, once a favourite of Goebbels, who cannot accept that her career is now over. Shot in gleaming black and white, this is an eerie vision of post-war Germany, a haunted world of shadows, secrets and suppressed memories.
