SYNOPSIS

An enigmatic and complex short by Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub (to whom Fassbinder dedicated his first film), The Bridegroom, the Comedienne and the Pimp consists of three disparate sequences, including a minimalist play adaptation from Fassbinder's Anti-Teater troupe and another in which Fassbinder portrays a pimp (one of his earliest on-screen roles). Irm Hermann and Hanna Schygulla make appearances, as well as Fassbinder's long-time composer Peer Raben.
