It has been a long time since I felt such a difference in viewing pleasure from the improvement of a new DVD release. Since watching this in the theater years ago to a few viewings from a ratty old VHS transfer, I was beginning to lose my affection for this film. Affection renewed! Probably the best of the 70s Bogarde flicks, and the most comedic of Fassbinder\'s stuff - though Querelle has some real zingers. A somewhat sociopathic choclatier, Hermann Hermann (Bogarde) gets the wild idea that he has a doppelganger, fully unaware that there is no resemblance whatsoever. His scheming leads to greater problems, and his ultimate downfall. I guess I am being a bit schizophrenic here, assuming everyone has seen it, and is waiting with bated breath, but also wanting to extol its virtues for the initiate. The color scheme was really lost in the inferior versions - this one claims to be "fully restored in HD" and would be worth an investment in a Blu ray edition. The colors really splash in a Milka kind of way. If you enjoyed Andréa Ferréol in La Grande Bouffe, you\'ll enjoy her dimwitted tartiness in this. Klaus Löwitsch, the doppelganger, seems straight out of a Genet novel. And, of course, Bogarde, in rare form, putting on a strange accent, as well as assuming the Nabokov wit and charm.
