The Fan

Der Fan

Seventeen-year-old Simone has developed a morbid obsession over the latest teen pop sensation. As she decides to hitchhike to Munich to meet him in person, things are about to get a decidedly twisted and bloody turn. A cult feminist icon of the 80s West German cinema, in which the heroine’s outburst is not fixation-driven, but rather the result of an unpleasant discovery: the object of her desire is equally integrated into the same patriarchal world she hopes to flee through her fantasy. The latest and enhanced model of a control system that has simply re-skinned into a more attractive outfit.
