Arthur Romanowski's rating of the film Martha

An intense and opressing melodrama, horror and opera movie by Rainer Werner Fassbinder based on a short story by Cornell Woolrich, who also wrote "Rear Window". You can watch one of the best camera work by Michael Ballhaus, especially the spinning scene, where Martha and Helmut meets first. Also a great use of opera music by Donizetti vs. Orlando di Lasso. A great Performance by Margit Carstensen.
