Plot: A deceivingly simple film about the uncomfortable romantic relationship between a 60 year-old German cleaning woman named Emmi and a 40 year-old Moroccan immigrant named Ali, ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL is one of director R.W. Fassbinder's most powerful pictures. Brought together by a jeering barmaid, Emmi and Ali are surprised to find that, after their initial meeting, they like one another. After a somewhat awkward courtship, the two unlikely lovers marry, angering Emmi's children and revealing the startling prejudices that pervade everyday German life. Winner of the International Critics' Prize at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival.
