Mother Küsters Goes to Heaven (1975) - Dir. Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 108 mins.

Mother Küsters is preparing dinner one evening, as she, her son and daughter-in-law are awaiting the arrival of her husband, who is strangely late. Soon, they learn that he has killed the owner of the factory in which he works and committed suicide. This turn of events sets Mother Küsters on a path of politicization as she comes to terms with the factors that motivated her husband's action.

In German with English sub-titles.
