The Merchant of Four Seasons (Fassbinder, 1971): Prince Charles Cinema, 6.15pm

This film, also being screend on June 30th, is part of the Rainer werner Fassbinder season at the Prince Charles. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Rainer Werner Fassbinder has a genius for detailing the pain of suppressed emotional states, and even at its most achingly deliberate, his style in dealing with the petit bourgeois mentality is a source of endless fascination. This 1971 feature, originally shot for German television, chronicles the struggles of a fruit peddler to build a semblance of a life for himself and his wife—with whom he maintains only the barest contact—in postwar Germany. With Hans Hirschmuller, Irm Hermann, and Hanna Schygulla.
