La ley del más fuerte (Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1975)

Drama, comedia, suspense; a veces a caballo entre la ficción y la realidad, pero siempre cine para pensar con sentido crítico lo social.

Sinopsis:

    Franz Biberkopf es un joven homosexual vulgar, ingenuo y bonachón que, tras trabajar como "Fox, la cabeza parlante" en una feria, gana medio millón de marcos en la lotería, lo que le permite introducirse en mejores y más exquisitos círculos gays, conociendo y enamorándose entonces de Eugen, hijo de un empresario que posee una imprenta al borde de la bancarrota. Eugen, que ha dejado a su amante, inicia una relación con Franz que resulta ante todo interesada: le saca dinero para la empresa paterna en sucesivas ocasiones; le hace comprar el piso y los muebles que compartirán; intenta corregirle sus modales nada finos y poco acordes con la educación burguesa, y programa un viaje a Marrakech...

Franz "Fox" Biberkopf is a working-class guy, at loose ends when his lover is arrested and the police shutter their carnival booth. In need of cash for his weekly lottery purchase, Fox lets himself be picked up by an elegant older man named Max. At Max's, he meets two younger gay men who have expensive tastes and images to uphold. The next day, Fox wins 500,000 marks in the lottery, and Max's friends suddenly become Fox's friends, especially Eugen, the heir to a bookbinding firm that's short of cash. Eugen's polish beguiles Fox, and the fleecing begins (IMDb).

In "Fox and His Friends" (1975) which Rainer Werner Fassbinder wrote and directed, he played a main character, Franz Bieberkopf alias "Fox", a lower class, uneducated circus worker who loses his job when his lover, the circus owner is arrested and sent to prison for tax fraud. Fox believes in his luck and strikes it rich by winning 500,000 marks in the lottery and very soon attracts the attention of an elegant, posh, and sophisticated Eugen who knows very well how to make Fox pay for his expensive habits and how to make him invest a lot of money in his father business that is not very successful to say the least. What fascinated me the most - how convincingly Fassbinder - one man production company who came up with the idea, wrote the screenplay and directed the movie- played seemingly tough but as it turned, confused and vulnerable Fox. Another interesting aspect of the movie is the way Fassbinder describes the gay community in Germany of the early 70s. He does not make any excuses and he does not make his characters complete villains or innocent victims. The story he tells could've happened in any community (IMDb Coments).
