The Marriage of Maria Braun

By Tom Keogh

Hanna Schygulla was a true star in this remarkable, semi-allegorical drama by Rainer Werner Fassbinder about a woman whose new marriage soon becomes a long history of waiting for reunification with her husband as he goes off to war, gets lost on the Russian front, ends up in prison, and goes to America. Meanwhile, the phantom marriage suspends the title character in a destiny that leads to power and wealth while still anticipating his return. One of several cinematic metaphors by Fassbinder for the identity and experience of post-war Germany, this 1978 film looks more than ever like a masterpiece.

"This film is one of the strangest films of all time, but at the same time highly intriguing. One of Fassbinders best. The portrayal of Maria as coming from nothing to being a very powerful women in a time and place where poverty ruled, was intriguing to say the least. One of the strangest but most intriguing parts being when Maria has dinner alone in the restaurant near the end, as she walks out but collapses, the screen composition with the other events apparently taking place right in the restaurant as well, is one of Fassbinders most ingenious scenes. By showing the power of Maria on one hand and her vulnerability on the other all at the same time. Definitely one of those scenes worth a second look."
