Querelle was Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s final film, shot only a few months before his death, and it shares the common director themes of betrayal, power relations, love, genre boundaries... And this book is the full script along with over 100 pages of beautiful photographs from Rainer W. Fassbinder’s film.
Genet’s strange world is redesigned in this film like a dream, a surreal landscape or fetishistic fantasy, a theatrically charged stage to portray the passions of gay and bisexual love.
Besides appreciating its cultural and politician value, in our visual memory one of the most striking aspects of Querelle, is its colour. That warm orange glow that suffuses the film and raises its temperature. And this book, this edition, is the only one with this amazing cover that keeps that colour and that heat.
