Description: Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun is one of the finest movies this prolific German director has made. It is the story of a shrewd and ambitious woman who uses her sexual gifts as a means of achieving success. While her husband (Klaus Lowitsch) is off to war and presumed killed in action, Maria takes up with a black G.I. (George Byrd). She murders the American when her husband returns.

" The downfall of a beautiful woman. In a way shows how closely love is related to hate and destruction. My biggest problem was with how contrived/conveniently things happen to push the plot in this film of cynicism and post war striving for survival. For example, we could all fathom the possibility of the husband coming back to life but to cement this fact we are met with a convenient death of the black soldier and the black baby (angel). Cheap outs, to not have to tackle more serious issues is "

"Muutaman huonon kokemuksen jälkeen olen vältellyt Fassbinderia ja tässä sitä taas ollaan. Saksan nousu toisen maailmanpalon tuhkasta ja häpeästä kiteytyy tunteettomaan, sosiopaattiseen Schygullaan joka ui liiveissä raunioista pohataksi natsimies vankilassa vartoomassa. Kivoa kuvia, hauskoja hetkiä, toimiva kokonaisuus. Mutta, mutta löytyy. Jokin ei vain natsaa."

My Movie Highlights of the 1970s (+Watchlists) (90 movies items)

"This is a German classic of director R.W. Fassbinder. I was terribly bored throughout this movie, although Hanna Schygulla gave a good performance. Angst essen Seele auf (Fear Eats the Soul), also directed by Fassbinder, is a much better movie. my rating: 5,5"
