AFS: THE MERCHANT OF FOUR SEASONS

Inspired by the Hollywood melodramas of Douglas Sirk, Fassbinder forged a new style with this part social satire/part melodrama portrait of a down-on-his-luck fruit peddler.

Fassbinder shakes up his loose, cool reputation by diving into social satire via melodrama with the first of his films made after his deep dive into the electrifying melodramatic world of Douglas Sirk. Humorously criticizing both a broken society and the people that inhabit it, Fassbinder makes a microcosm of the struggles of a poor street fruit peddler and his many failures. A dark and funny parable about everyday people in the Germany that Fassbinder lived to critique.
