blonde venus

there was a time when the name hanna schygulla was imbedded in our cinema consciousness, thanks to the brilliant filmmaker fassbinder.

'One of many protégés of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who gave Schygulla especially tender treatment and nurturing, while he terrorized, manipulated, and slept with many of the other actors and filmmakers Fassbinder developed in his incestuous family-like theatrical and film troupes.'

hanna made 23 movies with the bad boy of german cinema and she continues to star in films.
