In one of his most personal films, Rainer Werner Fassbinder (The Marriage of Maria Braun) wrote and directed this true-crime story, which he adapted from the book "Life Sentence". Having grown up in a small town with a domineering mother and a father who never believed in his worth, a young newlywed moves to the big city with his bride and starts anew. The pressures of work, family and finances become too much for him and he experiences a nervous breakdown. Cinematography by legendary DP, Michael Ballhaus (The Departed).
