Angela, a young disabled girl, invites her divorced parents to spend the weekend at the family country house. Each arrives with their lover, unaware of the other's presence. On Angela's suggestion, a game of Chinese roulette is played after dinner... Around a disabled child and her family, Fassbinder paints the portrait of a German society in complete perdition. The absence of love and devotion of the parents, faced with the infirmity of the main character, is here only a pretext to excuse their gloomy and futureless existence. Chinese Roulette is a harsh and cynical work of frightening accuracy. CHINESE ROULETTE (1976 – Colors – 86 mins) SUPPLEMENTS .
