Due to a mechanical failure, this screening will now be presented digitally.
In this intense melodrama, an egomaniacal fashion designer draws nearer to crisis in her personal life as an attractive young woman enters her orbit. Margit Carstensen is unforgettable in the title role. With equally compelling turns from her ensemble of co-stars. A gorgeous nightmare of excess set entirely inside one of the most decadent apartments imaginable.
