Händler der vier Jahreszeiten / The Merchant of Four Seasons

Hans is a traveling fruit shop that sells his merchandise through the streets of Munich. He is a failed man and has lost self-esteem, among other things because he has a dominant mother who has always been dissatisfied with him. In addition, the woman of his life left him planted, and his cold and jealous wife and his cynical sister have shattered his life.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1945) is a German film, theatrer and television director, as well as a producer and writer. Representative of the new German cinema, he began his career in 1969 with two films, Liebe ist kälter als der Tod (Love is colder than death) and Katzelmacher. From 1971, influenced by the melodrama state of Douglas Sirk, he left behind his most artistic stage to focus on a more popular cinema, looking for a way to communicate with the audience without sentimental tricks. His first melodrama, Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant (The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, 1972) was also his first international success.
