Lili Marleen (1980)
Fates from the density of new German cinema
Lili Marleen is a hit. It is incredibly kitsch, though it's becoming increasingly harder to define what kitsch is, exactly. The poem written by Hans Leip at the time of the First World War was set to music by Norbert Schultze, and became successful mainly through a performance by Lale Andersen, before in World War Two it became a massive catchy smash at the frontline on both sides of the divide. In Fassbinder's hands it becomes a melodrama, not that this particular genre is typical of the director. You can rightly wonder whether the film isn't really be about the painful tale of the Aryan singer (Hanna Schygulla) and the Jewish pianist and composer (Giancarlo Giannini).
In German, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screening will be conducted in Hungarian.
