Allerson and Carstensen are a happily married, well-to-do Munich couple with a crippled daughter (Andrea Schober). Allerson tells his wife that he is going to Oslo for a weekend business trip; instead, he picks up his French mistress, Karina, and takes her to the castle the family uses as a vacation home. There he finds Carstensen with her lover. They decide that they are all adults and decide to go on with their respective weekends as planned. Son Lommel turns up, manipulating everyone, and Mira appears as a sadistic housekeeper with an androgynous son. Lommel gets them all to play a truth game, and violence results. Excellent Fassbinder film from the director's Douglas Sirk-influenced period. (In German; English subtitles.) leave a comment
