Spoiled young British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Hugo Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) as his manservant. Initially appearing to settle in well to his new position, Barrett, however, soon begins to exert his influence over his master, subtly ingratiating himself whilst plotting his next move, much to the horror of Tony's fiancee Susan (Wendy Craig). As his influence becomes steadily more pervasive, culminating with the hiring of his 'sister' Vera (Sarah Miles) into a position in the house, Barrett's sexual machinations eventually lead to a complete role-reversal, as he finally attains domination over his master.

In 'Veronika Voss' (1982), a journalist (Hilmar Thate) becomes fascinated with Veronika Voss (Rosel Zech), 1940s German film star and one-time friend to Goebbels, who has deteriorated into a morphine addict in the care of a disreputable doctor. In 'In a Year of Thirteen Moons' (1978), Volker Spengler gives an extraordinary performance as the transgendered Elvira, a man who has become a woman in a desperate bid to please a former lover. Relaying various episodes from Elvira's life, Fassbinder's powerful film is also one of his most intensely personal. 'The Third Generation' (1979), one of Fassbinder's most controversial films, is a perverse satire about an incompetent gang of bourgeois terrorists who are motivated more by a desire for action than by their weak political convictions. 'Germany in Autumn' (1978) is a portrayal of the political unrest wrought in the autumn of 1977 by the terrorist activities of the Red Arm BBFC code: 18
