The Bitter Tears Of Petra Von Kant

A lurid and stylized account of the mangled web of domination, sado-masochism and jealousy among three lesbians. One of Fassbinder's most controversial works, the film is set in a single room amid the music of Verdi and The Platters. Margit Carstensen and Hanna Schygulla star.
