West Germany in 1973 is still feeling the after effects of the Second World War. Emmi, a cleaning lady almost of retirement age, lives a solitary life in Munich. A widow with adult children, she feels an unbearable sense of loneliness. One evening on her way home, she stops into a bar to wait out the rain. Here she meets Ali, a strapping young Moroccan immigrant. Despite the vast differences in their ages and cultures, Emmi and Ali embark upon a torrid love affair, marrying after only a few weeks. But their happiness scandalises Emmi's children, co-workers and fellow townspeople, who are disgusted by Emmi's brazen flouting of their standards of decency

Originally made for television, Berlin Alexanderplatz is a prototype for the modern long-form drama, grandfather to Tony and the Sopranos

Each of these three films is centred on a woman who is under pressure from those around her to conform, and Fassbinder adopts the stylized acting and framing techniques of the 1950s melodrama to explore the frailty of the human condition and the strength of the individual in the face of these oppresive forces
