Official Selection Cannes Film Festival

This is the story of a child of his time: The story of an extremely talented and dynamic artist called Rainer Werner Fassbinder who dreams of making movies about the cold-hearted, archaic Federal German society and about the longing for respect and love of the outsiders – foreigners, underprivileged groups, small convicts. His fulminant rise to being one of the most important directors in Europe correlates with his mental and physical fall and his early death.
