Berlin Classic at BAM

By Lisa M. Collins

Saturday, Nov. 20, 2, 4:30, 6:50, 9:15: One of Fassbinder’s most acclaimed films is the first in his BRD trilogy about Germany’s post-war economic recovery. The film opens in 1943 as an explosion interrupts Maria’s (iconic actress Schygulla, who received the Best Actress award at the Berlin Film Festival) wedding and follows her through the subsequent years as she grasps desperately for money and power. This touchstone of the German New Wave functions both as a delirious camp soap opera and as a metaphor for Germany’s precarious economic fortune. In German with English subtitles.

The Marriage of Maria Braun, part of BAMcinematek.

Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, (1979) 120min
