Way ahead of its time, this film presents characters who are unproblematically gay. Fox, an ex-fairground worker, wins the lottery and falls in love with ‘posh and prissy’ Eugen (Chatel) but is mocked and exploited by his boyfriend’s family and friends. Outstanding in the title role, Fassbinder exudes vitality and vulnerability. It’s both savagely funny and desperately sad.
