Filmfest 2012

German Age Rating

Film Website

"Quintessential Fassbinder, a roller-coaster ride through the last unhappy days of Elvira Weishapt, whose quarterback physique can't be transformed by any number of hormones . . . not a film to recommend to anyone who isn't familiar with other work by this most bitterly funny, talented and prolific West German director . . . The movie is grotesque, arbitrary, sentimental and cold as ice. Its only redeeming feature is genius."
Vincent Canby, The New York Times, October 8, 1979
