" Another Fassbinder work of art, this is the sordid story of a volatile war widow, played by the heavenly Hanna Schygulla. "

"28.6. Maria Braunin hahmo on ehdottomasti yksi Fassbinderin tuotannon mielenkiintoisimmista, koska käytännössä kyse on harvinaisen hyvin tulevaa ennakoivasta uranaisen henkilökuvasta. Avioliitostaan tiukasti pitävä hahmo rakentaa itselleen ja poissaolevalle aviomiehelleen idylliä pelaamalla miesten säännöillä eli alistamalla vastakkaista sukupuolta häikäilemättömästi. Tunteensa hän säästää vain rakkaansa nähtäväksi, muut kosijat sen sijaan saavat olla malttamattomina va"

" March 05, Class screening My favorite from my world cinema class so far. Possibly because I could follow the story better, I know enough German to get quite a bit of the dialogue without reading subtitles so I could enjoy watching the film instead of reading it. Humor, drama, political significance that I can understand and appreciate. I liked the characters as well, I was emotionally attached to them, and Maria was interesting to say the least."

"Jälleen hieno henkilökuva Fassbinderiltä, vaikka kerronta onkin ehkä turhankin täyteen ahdettu ja loppuratkaisu tuntuu aika väkinäiseltä, vaikka ohjaaja pysyisikin vertauskuvallisuuden ym. kautta sen perustelemaan. Naispäähenkilö on kuitenkin kiehtova tapaus tunteiden tukahduttamista, miesten välineistämistä omiin tarkoituksiinsa jne. ja Saksan sodanjälkeinen ilmapiiri niin ikään hienosti tuotu esille."

"6.1. 2011 31.1. 2011 Watched again Originally Fassbinder wanted Romy Schneider to play the main role in this film, but choosing Hanna Schygulla was obviously the right choice since the film became one of the biggest successes for her and the director. This is also the last time the director worked with famous cinematographer Michael Ballhaus. The film revolves around the character of Maria Braun, a German woman, who got married but lost her husband to war very soon after the wedding. After lo"

"Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. This movie follows the life of a young German woman, married to a soldier in the waning days of WWII. Fassbinder has tried to show the gritty life after the end of WWII and the turmoil of the people trapped in its wake. Rainer Werner Fassbinder has made some sort of impact on me. This is another film from him to relationship and quite good one too. World War II bends well in the hands of Fassbinder."
