French director François Ozon, who never ceases to amaze the audience, pays tribute to the provocateur of German cinema, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, presenting a new version of the film "The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant" – a rich, spicy and extremely stylish take on the classic. The theatrical melodrama painted in bright colors invites to immerse yourself in the spectacle of lust and beauty. Viewers who have not seen the original film will be treated to a dizzying geometry of love and retro pulsating aesthetics, while cinephiles familiar with R.W. Fassbinder's work will see the deconstructed masterpiece of the German cinema master and feel as if they are watching two different films flirting with each other at the same time. This opening film of the Berlin Film Festival is a wink from one enfant terrible to another enfant terrible.
