    A facinating study of characters finding themselves in extreme circumstances during the post-war decades in Germany. Maria Braun is a truly original character and a large part of our facination for her is due to her development from star-crossed lover and scavenger to an icy manipulator, navigating her way to the top of the business world. Despite how she treats the men around her, we still retain sympathy for her, largely because she is driven by loyalty and love to her husband and because she possess such an abundance of strong character traits such as determination, intellect, composure and dignity. 3 years 7 months ago

    A terrific film! The best Fassbinder I've seen so far. Certainly the least amateurish of his films. 4 years 11 months ago

    Fassbinder made some of the most monotonous films, but in this one at least we have Hanna Schygulla who shines too much and therefore manages to save the viewer from complete boredom with her charisma and fantastic screen presence. 4 months 2 weeks ago
