Worth Watching? Maybe, if you speak German?
Bechdel Test? Don't know, but I doubt it
Race Bechdel Test? Fail
Synopsis (from letterboxd): Armande, the wife of surgeon Colbert, has numerous love affairs and pursues Jacques, whom Armande’s girlfriend Liliane has in her sights.
My Thoughts: I couldn't find a version with subtitles and I don't speak German, so this was a pretty weird ride for me, but my invented narrative was probably better than the real story, which I'm pretty sure is something like: "two women who are in love compete for a man and one kills the other because reasons".
Additional Note: the portrayal of the Moroccans is HIGHLY problematic.
