, the crazy world of Dali and his dynamic, equally iconoclastic wife Gala (Fassbinder standby Barbara Sukowa) through the eyes of a young assistant, trying to find his own place in the art world, only to enter another universe, that of Dali and Gala. “The latest of the director's splendidly offbeat biopics captures the madness, the comedy and the tragedy of the surrealist legend who turned his very identity into a work of art”—Owen Gleiberman, Variety
