Katzelmacher is a West German film that analyzes the racial tensions between a Greek immigrant who moves to Munich, Jorgos (Rainer Warner Fassbinder), and a group of his German peers. He is accepted into their group of friendship amidst the violence that is frequent in the city. Shot in 1969, this film contains extended periods of dialogue and has strong political and social undertones. A motif of nationalism is easily distinguishable in Katzelmacher. Shortly after being involved with a local woman, Jorgo's friends slowly begin to develop an animosity towards him. The plot begins to speed up and the unthinkable happens. They must all compromise in an attempt to close the cultural divide and stay on good terms as this film slowly builds to its climax. Katzelmacher won several German film awards, such as Outstanding Individual Screenplay and Feature Film awards as well as the Interfilm award at the Mannheim-Heidelberg International Filmfestival. Rainer Warner Fassbinder, one of the movie's leading actors, also directed the film.moreless
