About this title

Synopsis:

This study of "The Marriage of Maria Braun" contains the editor's introduction, a chronology, a biographical sketch of Fassbinder, a full transcript of the film as released, notes on the shooting script, interviews with the scriptwriter and director, a commentary on Douglas Sirk by Fassbinder, and reviews and commentaries by Thomas Elsaesser and Sheila Johnston. The film is its director's attempt to recount and assess postwar German history through the personal example of his main character, Maria Braun herself (played by Hanna Schygulla). Fassbinder had a reputation as an "enfant terrible". His personal life, homosexuality, drug experimentation, and enormous output (over 32 films in 10 years), made him notorious, and he had an enormous influence on German New Wave Cinema.

From the Back Cover:

"The Marriage of Maria Braun" is the fourth volume in the Rutgers Films in Print Series and the most contemporary of those to appear in it thus far. Because of the enormous influence of New German Cinema and the importance of Fassbinder himself, the film is already considered a classic. "Maria Braun" is its director's attempt to recount and assess postwar German history through the personal example of his main character, played brilliantly by Hanna Schygulla. It is also a tribute to the Hollywood directors of the women's movies of the thirties and forties. Maria, and in the loose allegory Fassbinder has constructed, Germany itself, in their cold acquisitiveness and materialism, melodramatically rise from the ashes of World War II only to veer toward an inevitable doom that takes the film full circle, recalling the film's opening shots of a city reduced to rubble.

This volume contains the editor's introduction, a chronology of the the years 1943-1954, a biographical sketch of Fassbinder, the full transcript of the film as released, notes on the shooting script, interviews with the scriptwriter and director, commentary on Douglas Sirk by Fassbinder, reviews, commentaries by Thomas Elsaesser and Sheila Johnston, a filmography, and a bibliography.
