Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (Digital Restoration)
- Rainer Werner FASSBINDER
Nominees and Awards
In a pub frequented by foreigners, 60-something widow Emmi meets the Moroccan Ali, at least 20 years her junior. Ali dances with Emmi, they chat, he accompanies her home. He moves in with her. They get married. For the others, this marriage is a scandal: Emmi’s grown children are embarrassed, the neighbors whisper, the green grocer asks her to leave his shop, the colleagues despise her. Ali starts to see his former girlfriend Barbara again, but when Emmi attempts to get him back, Ali has a breakdown. The doctor diagnoses a burst ulcer. Emmi stays with Ali, holding his hand.
