REVIEW FOR I ONLY WANT YOU TO LOVE ME - A GERMAN FILM BY RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER
Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club, is screening some of the celebrated works of Rainer Werner Fassbinder through the screening of 9 of his unforgettable and unsurpassed films, from 20th to 26th August, at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre.
Today, the second day, I Only Want You To Love Me, will be screened. The movie tells the poignant story of Peter, who endures a loveless childhood and becomes a maladjusted adult unable to cope with daily life and the responsibilities of raising a family.
A compulsive worker and consumer, Peter tries to buy the love denied him by lavishing gifts on those around him. Under the strain of mounting debts and long work days, Peter snaps, and in a moment of dissociation, commits a senseless murder. The movie won the International Critics Prize at Cannes in 1974.
Rainer Werner Fassbinder was born in 1945 and died in 1982. He was one of the most significant directors of the "New German Cinema". In just 13 years, between 1969 and 1982, he made 44 films. He wrote 14 plays, revised six others and directed 25. He wrote 4 radio plays and 37 screenplays and worked on a further 13 scripts with other writers. Fassbinder's films are among the most valid social documents produced between the late '60s and early '80s in Germany; his plays are among the most performed of any post-war German dramatist.
