A hilariously vulgar memoir from Germany's most radical gay filmmaker. After a screening of his latest meisterwerk, director/provocateur Rosa von Praunheim (himself) is gunned down by a member of the rioting audience. Hot on the killer's trail is intrepid TV

tabloid journalist Gesine Ganzmann-Seipel (Desiree Nick), who, after numerous interviews with disgruntled actors, bitter ex-lovers and even the director's own mother, wonders who wouldn't want to kill Rosa von Praunheim. Somewhat fictionalized (Praunheim is alive and well), mostly

autobiographical, the film is packed with terrific clips from von Praunheim's work. From the angry polemic of his groundbreaking IT IS NOT THE HOMOSEXUAL WHO IS PERVERSE BUT THE SITUATION IN WHICH HE LIVES to a bizarre drag number plucked from the AIDS awareness comedy A VIRUS KNOWS NO MORALS,

it's a wonderfully entertaining recap of a outlandish but important career. And if you've never seen it, the footage of Anita Bryant taking a pie in the face alone is worth the price of admission.
