Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
In the early 1970s, Rainer Werner Fassbinder discovered the American melodramas of Douglas Sirk and was inspired by them to begin working in a new, more intensely emotional register. One of the earliest and best-loved films of this period in his career is The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. This unforgettable, unforgiving dissection of the imbalanced relationship between a haughty fashion designer (Margit Carstensen) and a beautiful but icy ingénue (Hanna Schygulla) is a fully Fassbinder affair, featuring exquisitely claustrophobic cinematography and full-throttle performances by an all-female cast.
