Water Drops on Burning Rocks (Gouttes d'eau Sur Pierres Brulantes)
Adapted from an unproduced play written by the great Rainer Werner Fassbinder at the age of 19, WATER DROPS is set in Germany in the 1970s. Leopold, a smug, still-hunky 50-year-old businessman, picks up and seduces fresh-faced, carrot-topped 19-year-old Franz who swiftly moves into his bachelor pad. Their cozy relationship soon sours as Leopold, a kind of gone-to-seed Dirk Bogarde, turns cranky and argumentative. When Franz's buxom blond girlfriend surfaces, and then Leopold's elegant and enigmatic ex, things get funnier, steamier and a lot more complicated.
