Rainer Werner Fassbinder (The Marriage of Maria Braun) offers one of his most approachable works with this stylized May-December romance between a frumpy, late-middle-aged cleaning lady and a handsome Arab mechanic who is considerably younger. Among the interesting extras is a pithy discussion by Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven) of the shared influence of Douglas Sirk's 1955 Hollywood melodrama All That Heaven Allows. For all serious collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
A middle-aged woman falls in love with a younger Arab guest worker.
