Rainer Werner Fassbinder's fifteen-hour-plus adaptation of Alfred Döblin's novel, one of the most revered classics of German literature, is the German auteur's most lavish and complex production ever.

Landmark television series from the German ' wunderkind ' Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The series is a little uneven ( it seemed like every second episode was interesting ), but it is still worth watching.

Many years back I made an attempt to watch this 15-hour story, but gave up after 7 hours. With this DVD set I made another attempt, but after a little while decided, again, it did not warrant my time investment. The grainy images didn`t help, either. So this is strictly for Fassbinder fans, or film school projects. In German with subtitles.

Visually dark, relentlessly dreary, but strangely addictive. Wonderful performances.
