In a colorful brothel in the port of Brest, proprietor Nono (Gunther Kaufmann) is known for wagering with his customers. Win a throw of the dice, and they get to make love with his wife, Lysiane (Jeanne Moreau); lose, and they must take it from behind by Nono himself. One day, Lysiane reads the tarot for her lover, Robert (Hanno Poschl), and learns in the cards of his intense passion for his brother, Querelle (Brad Davis). Querelle himself soon arrives, and the brothers enact a bizarre greeting halfway between a hug and a wrestling match. Querelle, it seems, is looking for partners in a drug deal; Robert points him in the right direction. An argument about the merits of sex between men soon leads Querelle to murder his fellow smuggler, Vic (Dieter Schidor). Back at the whorehouse, Querelle loses on purpose to Nono and finds he has a taste for passive gay sex. Meanwhile, fellow sailor Gil, who looks exactly like Querelle's brother (and is played by the same actor), murders one of his compatriots after the brute publicly impugns his manhood. Wanted by the police for both his own crime and Querelle's, Gil goes on the lam. Querelle soon crashes his hideout, and an intense bond develops between the two murderers - a...Querelle ( 1982 ) ( Querelle: A Film About Jean Genet's 'Querelle de Brest ) (Blu-Ray)

Format: DVD
Querelle has been seen as Fassbinder's worst film, but then for others it is his best. It is certainly one of the most lurid, and has some startling sex scenes, great sets, and iconic performances. Nono the bar owner is certainly hot, and his treatment of Querelle is startling. The film doesn't really make that much sense but as a vision it sort of works, helped by the completely unrealistic look of the film, and the fact that it is filmed entirely on set. It works best seen as a sort of comic, both erotic and perverse in its focus on murder. The former attribute is more consistently mined in the equally lurid but more successful Pink Narcissus of ten years earlier, an underground film by John Bidgood that is likely to give more pleasure. Querelle is a highly original creation that stays in the mind. It does evoke the magic of celluloid and is worth seeing for Brad Davis and Jeanne Moreau, as well as the actor playing Nono - something of a rarity with his burly physique, singlet and hidden, rude desires.

This is one of my all time favourites. Amazing Acting, as the whole production is more like filmed Stage Play; however it is done with great effect.

Querelle looks perfect in Blu ray. I wasn't expected a great looking picture but that is what you will get with this transfer. Most movies don't get this good a treatment based on the material or subject matter. Well worth the money.

I found the experience of watching Querelle claustrophobic and suppressing...
I've tried for 20 years to get through this film... I've tried to watch it on VHS, then DVD and finally Blu ray.
I think this is as good as it gets picture quality wise... The first half of the film is still very grainy but for some unknown reason half way through it remains for the most part clear and grain free. It's been said that it's the filters that the director used that account for this effect but it looks to me like the lighting causes the orange hue rather than any filter over the lens, so why it 'gets clearer' later in the film remains a mystery to me.

As regards the film itself ALL the actors give excellent performances, especially the lead BRAD DAVIS. The reason I've found it so difficult to watch in the past is because of the claustrophobic atmosphere created by the lighting and the film stagey sets. Added to that the picture quality has always been pretty poor...

Now that I have watched it, I would recommend it, it's a film what would never had been made a year later or probably even now, it's not for the faint hearted but is a very important addition to anyone intereted in FASSBINDER or gay cinema.
