Dir. R.W. Fassbinder (1974).
R.W. Fassbinder set out to create stylized melodramas that would appeal to popular taste while criticizing the status quo. Ali “remakes” Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows, substituting a North African guest-worker and a 60-year-old German hausfrau for the originals more glamorous, star-crossed, May-December pair Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson.
