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 friendship that w...Querelle ( 1982 ) ( Querelle: A Film About Jean Genet's 'Querelle de Brest ) (Blu-Ray)

Fassbinder's final film (1982) is an expressionistic tour de force, based on Jean Genet's 1947
novel 'Querelle De Brest'. The director coaxes fine performances from Brad Davis, Franco Nero
and a wonderfully louche Jeanne Moreau. The film's colour has an almost hallucinatory quality

QUERELLE [1982] [Blu-ray] Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Last and Most Controversial Film!

‘QUERELLE’ is a 1982 West German-French English-language drama film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and starring Brad Davis, adapted from French author Jean Genet's 1947 novel Querelle de Brest. It marked Fassbinder's final film as a writer/director; t is also the final film of celebrated director Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s career, in making this film his most striking, surreal and utterly unique tale of sex and murder, that has gone on to become a cult film classic of its genre.

Querelle is a Belgium sailor on shore leave in the French port of Brest. Following and argument, in which he stabs and kills a drug-smuggling partner, he seeks shelter in a nearby brothel. There he befriends the predatory madam, Lysiane [Jean Moreau], who leads him into his first homosexual encounter. From then on Querelle embarks upon a voyage of highly charged and sometimes violent sexual self-discovery that will transform him forever from the man he once was . . .

FILM FACT: ‘QUERELLE’ sold more than 100,000 tickets in the first three weeks after its release in Paris, the first time that a film with a strong gay theme had achieved such success. However, the film received mixed reviews; critics who praised it called it a "noble experiment," while detractors called it incoherent and disjointed. Penny Ashbrook calls ‘QUERELLE’ Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "perfect epitaph: an intensely personal statement that is the most uncompromising portrayal of gay male sensibility to come from a major filmmaker." Edmund White considers ‘QUERELLE’ the only film based on Jean Genet's book that works, calling it "visually as artificial and menacing as Jean Genet's prose.

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.
