Gotter der Pest / Gods of the Plague (1970) DVD5
The film has a slight plot, is stylish and though absurd the dialogue is inanely witty. It has a taciturn petty criminal named Franz Walsch (Harry Baer) just released from prison and returning to his old underworld haunts, where the gangsters play cards, peddle porn and act like hoods. Franz's cheap nightclub chanteuse girlfriend Johanna Reiher (Hanna Schygulla) has taken up with a cop (Jan George). Schygulla is pleasing as she does a Marlene Dietrich singing act, as seen in such Josef von Sternberg films as The Blue Angel. Being rejected doesn't deter the handsome Franz, as he immediately takes up with sexy blonde Margarethe (Margarethe Von Trotta). Franz's plan is to hook up with a criminal friend who has the distinction of killing his own brother and is called by the nickname of "Gorilla" (Gunther Kaufman).
