Enfant Terrible A Film Based On Rainer Werner Fassbinder In Theaters Now


ENFANT TERRIBLE, the biopic of iconic German New Wave director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, commences in select theaters this May - June from Dark Star Pictures.

From director Oskar Roehler, and starring Oliver Masucci, Hary Prinz, Katja Riemann, and Felix Hellmann, ENFANT TERRIBLE had its world premiere at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival.


This is the story of a child of his time…of an extremely talented and dynamic filmmaker named 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. 


The 411:

Well what I liked about this movie was the same thing I didn't like about it. The actors were all on the greasy side. The sets were all very play like BUT it worked for this.  The abusive, grimy, close ups, seedy locations, major attitude all made for a cinematic tyrant who used and abused people to get what he wanted out of them.

Apparently Werner Fassbinder was not a nice man or according to this film and what I could understand but if you are into this kind of thing I just might like it! 

See it in theaters now or On Demand June 15th!
