The Marriage of Maria Braun

Die Ehe der Maria Braun

West Germany, 1979


The Marriage of Maria Braun is the “German Hollywood film” Fassbinder had long dreamed of making. A heartbreaking study of a woman picking herself up from the ruins of her own life, as well as a pointed metaphorical attack on a society determined to forget its past.
