Enfant Terrible


When 22-year-old Rainer Werner Fassbinder storms the stage of a small, progressive theatre in Munich 1967, and seizes the production without further ado, nobody suspects this brazen young rebel to become one of the most important post-war German filmmakers. Despite early setbacks, many of his films breakout at the most renowned films festivals and polarise audience, critics and filmmakers alike. His radical views and self-exploitation, as well as his longing for love, have made him one of the most fascinating film directors of this time.


Director´s Bio - Oskar Roehler

Oskar Roehler started his career as a screenwriter and had his breakthrough with his second feature NO PLACE TO GO (DIE UNBERÜHRBARE; 2000), a very personal portrait of his mother, which premiered in Cannes (Director’s Fortnight) and received the German Film Award (Lola) for best film. His other award winning films include ANGST (DER ALTE AFFE ANGST, 2003 – Berlinale Official Competition), AGNES AND HIS BROTHERS (AGNES UND SEINE BRÜDER; 2004 – Venice Orizzonti) as well as his film adaptation of Michel Houellebecq‘s novel ELEMENTARY PARTICLES (ELEMENTARTEILCHEN; 2006 – Berlinale Official Competition). With JEW SUSS: RISE AND FALL (JUD SÜSS – FILM OHNE GEWISSEN; 2010 – Berlinale Official Competition) Oskar created one of his most polarizing films. After SOURCES OF LIFE (DIE QUELLEN DES LEBENS; 2012 – Karlovy Vary Official Competition) and his ‘Master and Servant’ portrait OUTMASTERED (HERRLICHE ZEITEN; 2018), ENFANT TERRIBLE is Oskar’s latest film and homage to one of the most legendary and radical German Filmmakers - Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
