The 120 Days of Bottrop

The survivors of the old Fassbinder crew (Margit Carstensen, Irm Hermann, Volker Spengler and many others, playing themselves) get together one last time to make the very last of the New German Films: a remake of Pasolini's "Salò". Director Christoph Schlingensief (played by INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS fame Martin Wuttke) gets suddenly replaced by Sönke Buckmann (FREAKSTARS 3000's Mario Garzaner), who just won the Bundesfilmpreis. Part parody, part heartfelt homage, THE 120 DAYS OF BOTTROP gives New German Cinema its final coup de grâce.
