THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT

Genre: Drama
Written by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Directed by Louis Lopardi

Fassbinder’s most famous film, which questions the possibility of truly selfless love, started as a stage play:

Fashion designer Petra von Kant is a part of the German post-war economic miracle. A self-made business owner, she imperiously rules her family and business kingdoms with the help of Marlene, her long suffering assistant. When a friend introduces her to a social-climbing young lady, Petra learns the truth behind Thomas Mann’s dictum “who loves the more is the inferior and must suffer.”
