A deceivingly simple film about the uncomfortable romantic relationship between a 60-year-old German cleaning woman named Emmi and a 40-year-old Moroccan immigrant named Ali, ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL is one of director R.W. Fassbinders most powerful pictures. Brought together by a jeering barmaid, Emmi and Ali are surprised to find that, after their initial meeting, they like one another. After a somewhat awkward courtship, the two unlikely lovers marry, angering Emmis children and revealing the startling prejudices that pervade everyday German life.
