This is the first entry in Fassvember! I’d never seen this before and it might be one of RWF’s best. It goes all over the place! It starts out at a circus sideshow and there are scenes in gay bars, a bunch of rich people’s homes, a factory, gay cruising spots, a flower shop, fancy restaurants, a weird nude mud bath, and it even takes a detour in Marrakech. Yeah, there are some major statements about exploitation, capitalism, class, even religion, but it’s all built around the framework of a classic Hollywood-style culture clash romance - there’s even a scene where the hoity-toity Eugen kicks Franz under the table at dinner after he makes a minor faux pas during a conversation about Stravinsky.
