Marianne Sägebrecht, star of Rosalie Goes Shopping

Rosalie Goes Shopping is a 1989 German film (in English) directed by Percy Adlon and starring Marianne Sägebrecht, Brad Davis, and Judge Reinhold.


The film, which was in competition at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival[1] and met mixed reviews. The Deseret News described it as "dark satire masquerading as bright comedy", acknowledging it as a comment on American consumerism, and praised Sägebrecht's "terrific comic talents",[2] while both film critic Roger Ebert[3] and TV Guide[4] gave it three stars (of a maximum four). The Washington Post, on the other hand, regretted the film's "deficit of dramatic tension" and considered Adlon's message "scatterbrained" and "thin stuff indeed".[5]
