Beware of a Holy Whore

Synopsis: On a film set there are two things missing, the film material and the director. So the actors and actresses as well as the crew try to make the best out of the situation. When the director arrives the material is still missing and so they still wait and try to make the best out of the situation. When the material finally arrives all folks involved into the film find themselves in a weird situation. Jealousy, competition and despair are ruling. Nobody seems to be able to break through this atmosphere, so they all still try to make the best out of the situation, but this is probably not the way to finish the film.

PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL

BEWARE OF A HOLY WHORE

A film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder

Then there's the story of Wee Willy,

the gangster.

Goofy wants to be a children's nanny,

so he borrows some clothes

from his Aunt Anna.

A red-and-white checked

calico dress and a big hat.

He pretends to be a kindergarten

teacher, which doesn't work out,

because the kids all say they've

never seen such a queer teacher.

When Goofy gets beaten up by the kids

in despair,

he throws the clothes in the bin.

At that moment,

an escaped convict comes by,

Wee Willy, the gangster.

He's no bigger than

a three-year-old girl.

He finds Goofy's clothes in the bin

and puts them on.

On his way home,

Goofy bumps into Wee Willy

wearing his aunt's clothes.

He takes the little girl home,

because he thinks the poor mite

doesn't have a home.

They go home and he serves up

pheasant and partridges

and a whole goose

and Wee Willy stuffs himself full.

Goofy's pretty surprised

at the little girl's appetite.

But he's mighty pleased, too,

and thumps his fists on the table.

Wee Willy behaves terribly,

but at last Goofy is enjoying himself

looking after a child.

During the night,

the house is surrounded by gangsters.

No, not by gangsters, by police.

They storm the house

and find Wee Willy.

They recognise him

despite what he's wearing.

Goofy's amazed and asks

what they want of the poor girl.

"This is terrible. What has she

done? Poor little orphan."

The police explain to him that

it's Wee Willy, a wanted criminal.

And as the police carry Willy out,

ranting and raving, Goofy says,

"It must have been a shock

for the poor little girl

"to find out she's a crook."

Look how he gives him a light.

Thanks.

I still think he's great.

Surely it's possible

to get a number in Stuttgart.

Yeah, I'll wait.

David.

I'm busy.

Room 23.

Hanna.

It's Fred.

- They all belong to the same clique.

- Who?

Hanna, Ricky,

David, Fred,

the girl with the curly hair there.

You need to clean your teeth.

Stop mauling me.

And Kosinski.

They're a kind of commune.

What's a commune?

They all live with each other.

We start shooting tomorrow,

Mr Meister.

Is there really no chance?

No, no,

in Munich the cheque will be...

OK, I'll phone again later. Thanks.

It makes me sick.

Another repressed queen.

- Who?

- Our coach.

I've drawn up the wake-up call list.

Idiot. We don't have the material,

and you're making a wake-up list.

There's no need to shout at me.

I'll shout at you if I want.

Where's Mandig?

You have to wait for the supertrip.

Then a feeling of

great tranquility overcomes you.

When I came down

from a trip like that once

I experienced what it was

like in the womb.

When's Jeff due back?

Candy!

Seor Candy!

Damn it! Whenever I want to

ask you something, I have to shout.

What the hell are you

unit manager for?

Don't you realise

how much I like you?

Come on. Get up.

I hate you, you satyr.

You, too, you witch.

I could have done that.

Shut your mouth, Koberle.

I'm as quiet as a mouse.

He's probably ancient.

Who knows? There was a race steward

in Le Mans who was 60,

but he was really with it.

- How much?

- 1200 metres.

You're all bastards!

Arseholes.

What's the matter?

They're all so nasty.

Come on, now.

Let's have a drink.

Everything's going wrong.

We're not getting the material

from Germany.

The cheque has bounced.

OK. Right.

Someone will publish my book.

You reckon?

Otherwise I'll start

an international hash ring.

That's pretty dangerous.

Luck's on my side.

I don't know what he sees in Eddie.
