Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1982

mad.lucas's rating of the film Veronika Voss

This is the last of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy", clearly demonstrating a certain level of maturity reached by the director at this point. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. One of the biggest highlights stays with the troubled relationship between the actress and "her best friend".
