The Marriage of Maria Braun
Sunday, March 5 - 7 and 9:30.
This Fassbinder masterpiece tells
the tale of the rise to power of
a penniless woman in Germany
who is waiting for the return of
her husband from world war ll.
This complex and riveting parable
of the decline of postwar German
society is as good as any film from
the New German cinema move
ment, thanks to an astonishing
performance in the lead by Hanna
Schygulla, and, of course, to the
sheer brilliance of Fassbinder's
vision and filmmaking mastery.
