Fassbinder On Melodrama Dvd

General DVDs

Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the enfant terrible of the New German Cinema, drew much of his inspiration from the work of his idol, the German born king of Hollywood melodrama, Douglas Sirk. Each of these three films is centred on a woman who is under pressure from those around her to conform, and Fassbinder adopts the stylized acting and framing techniques of the 1950s melodrama to explore the frailty of the human condition and the strength of the individual in the face of these oppressive forces.
