Rainer Werner Fassbinder was a prolific filmmaker during his short career had been making features for a few years when he produced this terrific family series working with West German television channel WDR. What started as a couple of episodes eventually grew to five feature-length programmes to be broadcast monthly, due to its popularity.
It’s easy to understand why audiences would be captivated by this Coronation Street style story of the Krüger family and the ups and downs of their lives both in the workplace and in between the sheets: this has something for everyone and often plays out like an early version of a German-set Auf Weidersehen Pet, as follows the extended family: Jochen (Gottfried John, Berlin Alexanderplatz) and his lover, Marion (Hanna Schygulla, The Marriage of Maria Braun) MT.
ON RELEASE FROM 24 SEPTEMBER 2017
