Episode 509: The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972)

Guest Co-Hosts: Kat Ellinger, Heather Drain

We’re looking at the 1972 film from Rainer Werner Fassbinder, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. It’s the story of love and loss for the titular Petra Von Kant (Margrit Carstensen) a fashion designer and her model/muse Karin (Hanna Schygulla). We see the beginnings and endings of that relationship as well as the fall out.

Heather Drain and Kat Ellinger join Mike to discuss this melodramatic work.
