Building on Fassbinder’s roots in experimental theatre, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant
combines stylish staging with the realism of a tormented and imbalanced
relationship and features outstanding performances from its all-female cast.
Petra is a successful fashion designer, her caustic and
self-assured nature is explored through her mistreatment of her assistant
Marlene, meanwhile she becomes enamoured with Karin - a young aspiring model.
This dissection of their relationship is one of Fassbinder’s greatest and most
interesting early works, perhaps because in many ways the emotionally
sadomasochistic relationships on screen were direct portraits of his own
destructive love affairs.
