Summary
A lottery win leads not to financial and emotional freedom but to social captivity in this wildly cynical classic about love and exploitation. A suggestible working-class innocent lets himself be taken advantage of by his bourgeois new boyfriend and his circle of materialistic friends, leading to the kind of resonant misery. It is unsparing social commentary, an amusingly pitiless and groundbreaking if controversial depiction of a gay community in 1970s West Germany
