Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss

Rainer Werner Fassbinder West Germany, 1982

comeandsee's rating of the film Veronika Voss

a brillant part of fassbinder's crowning trilogy. the film contains another mesmirzing lead performance, as well as an allegory of veronika as celebrated during the war, but hidden away afterwards just like germany's past. also, this film is a clear suggestion that not everyone gained from the economic miracle. a beautiful piece in crisp black and white too. fassbinder is a great auteur and this is a masterpiece.
