Rainer Werner Fassbinder's

When the object of his affection off-handedly comments "too bad you're not a girl," Erwin disappeared to Casablanca and returned as Elvira. Now, adrift and alone amid the maze of the streets of Frankfurt, Elvira revisits the people and places of his past, desperately searching for the identity and love she's never know.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's masterpiece defies categorization, equal parts melodrama, dark comedy, tragedy and almost clinical character study. Featuring a breathtaking central performance by the great Volker Spengler, In A Year With 13 Moons is an ultimately tender and moving portrait of a lost and fragile soul. Begun only weeks after the suicide of his lover, Fassbinder wrote, directed, photographed and edited what is perhaps his most powerful film.
