The Bitter Tears Of Petra Von Kant 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.
