according to derek malcolm; in 1977, when fassbinder was in the jury at the berlin film festival, he asked for the golden bear to be given to the film woschozdenie (the ascent) by larissa schepitko from soviet russia, and some of the jury members did not seem willing, but there was a bit of debate. when fassbinder got angry and turned to the door saying "if you are not going to award this film, i will leave the jury", another jury member, derek malcolm, stood up saying "if he goes, i will go too." then they gave the award to that film.

it is tragic that the director of the film, which won the fassbinder appreciation, died in a traffic accident 2 years after receiving the award. she was one of the promising female directors of those times.

the theatrical expression in his films is due to his very good use of the setting. he wants the audience to understand the subject not only through dialogues but also by interpreting the scene. and yes he keeps telling the same thing in a different setting.


"it is true as it is said that all of his films are bad. nevertheless, fassbinder is the best director of german cinema. when germany needed cinema to find itself again, he was there. the only director who can compare to fassbinder may be rosellini; it has not even succeeded in making france as visible as in the fassbinder films that reflect the germany of the post-war era.

he has a close relationship with the name franz. the characters he finds close to him in most of his films are called franz. he also used this name as the editor of his films. the source of this situation is the novel by alfred döblin berlin alexanderplatz. fassbinder said it helped me survive for this novel, and there is a fourteen-part television production adapted from it.
the name he used as the installer comes from the surname of franz walsch, raoul walsh *
