The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972) Film Review A

The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant
DIRECTOR: Rainer Werner Fassbinder
BOTTOM LINE “The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant” is a landmark in both New Queer Cinema and the New German Cinema. Fassbinder’s examination of the dynamics of a lesbian love triangle was shot, in true Fassbinder fashion, over a few hours in der Wunderkind’s apartment. Based on Fassbinder’s play. With Hanna Schygulla, Margit Carstensen and Irm Hermann. Remade in 1998 by Lisa Cholodenko as “High Art” with Ally Sheedy, Patricia Clarkson, and Radha Mitchell.
