Presented with the support of the Noosa Film Society, we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of Lola's release with a screening of Fassbinder's classic presented in a glorious 4K restoration. Lola is a wonderfully satirical tribute to capitalism and the third of the prolific auteur’s thematic Bundesrepublik Deutschland trilogy.
Centred on West Germany’s economic miracle in the 1950s, Lola follows the double life of Marie-Louise, a.k.a. Lola (the breakout role for Barbara Sukowa), a steamy cabaret singer, high-class prostitute and single mother from the town of Coburg.
When building inspector Von Bohm (Armin Mueller-Stahl) begins an investigation into corrupt local property developer and brothel owner Schukert (Mario Adorf), he soon finds himself in a difficult position after falling hopelessly in love with the alluring Lola, who just happens to be Schukert's ex-lover. Pitting the two against one another, Lola launches an outrageous plan to elevate herself in a world where everything—and everyone—is for sale.
Shot in childlike candy colors, Fassbinder’s Lola is a gorgeously opulent postwar German fable, steeped in a fugue of capitalist excess, moral hypocrisy and broken idealism.
