(aka 'The Stationmaster's Wife')

Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
West Germany 1977

 

  A condensed version of a Rainer Werner Fassbinder TV film from 1977. Perhaps the pacing was superior in the three-hour original, but the lack of narrative rhythm in the film's present form makes it a grueling experience even for those sympathetic to Fassbinder's enervated view of the world. With a plot that recalls Madame Bovary, the film recounts the romantic disappointments of a minor official's wife in a small German town. In the late Fassbinder style, the mise-en-scene is heavily clogged with intervening objects, generating his classic theme of the impossibility of love in a materialist society. Yet the characterization of the wife (Elisabeth Trissenaar) has an acrid shrewishness that pushes the film toward blunt misogyny.

Comments:

Quite a thick and hazy image here from New Yorker. The low static bitrate may indicate it is from an analog source and the prevalent combing shows it is not progressively transferred. The removable subtitles seem acceptable but my German is quite weak to critique it. No extras except some NY'er trailers. The film is for die-hard Fassbinder fans, of which I am not one.
