34th German/European Film Weekend: Fear Eats the Soul

An ageing, lonely charwoman befriends a Moroccan guest worker at least 20 years her junior. Finding comfort in each other’s company, they suddenly marry. Everyone around them objects to their marriage so the couple pulls together for support. Fassbinder offers a sharp, incisive portrait of prejudice in Germany, grounded in contemporary social conditions.
