Editorial Reviews

MARTHA
IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS

He has been called everything from a petty tyrant to the last great filmmaker of the 20th century. In little more than ten years, Rainer Werner Fassbinder created an amazing legacy of forty-three films. Before his death at the age of 37, Fassbinder had destroyed boundaries, redefined genres, and changed the course of German cinema. Fantoma is very proud to present this special 2-DVD set featuring two of his finest films.

Plus, even Wem Wenders is interviewed in the documentary.

This set would probably be the best introduction to Fassbinder's films that you can find.
Stalwart Kreinblaster
Both are haunting, touching, and unflinching in that sense.

This set would probably be the best introduction to Fassbinder's films that you can find. 'Martha' represents the quintessential Fassbinder melodrama.. Margret Carstensen's desperate performance as a tortured wife is unforgettable.. 'In a Year with 13 Moons' is among the director's best works - it is a transitional film in his catalog it brings together the experimentation of his early years with the scope of his later hollywood-like (tongue in cheek hollywood) films..

This would be my choice for an affordable introduction to Fassbinder.

I'm a huge fan of Fassbinder, and have about 15 of his films, having seen many others as well. As far as a starting point for a new student of this master of cinema, I suppose this is as good a point as any. (My intro was Querelle, which is his worst film, so I never saw another Fassbinder film for a long time, until I saw "Marriage of Maria Braun", and then found out how great a director he was.) Maybe "Maria Braun" is a good place to start, for a conventional film, but then again, conventionality isnt Fassbinder's strong suite. The 2 DVD box set, has a lot of extras, to begin with, which are not mentioned in the product discription. "13 Moons" has an intro by Richard Linklater (Slackers, Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly, School of Rock, etc), and two interviews as extras :The editor of the movie, and a conversation with Werner Schroeter, and Juliane Lorenz, both long associated with his films. The film MARTHA, has a feature length documentary connected to it, with interviews of Hanna Schygulla, Ulli Lommel, and the famous Cinematographer, who shot most of Fassbinder's films until moving to Hollywood, Michael Ballhaus. (He won an academy award for THE DEPARTED, and has filmed tons of top hollywood features.) Plus, even Wem Wenders is interviewed in the documentary. So, not only are you getting two fantastic films, but the extras are worth the price of admission themselves. Now, a quick word might be nice about the films. IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS (an ancient astrological omen of Doom and bad luck), we have the story of a man who fell in love with another man. OK, we handle homosexuality in the USA so maturely, that's no problem, right? But, the man was told by the object of his affections, "Its too bad you're not a woman, I could really love you.Read more ›

CLASSIC Fassbinder FILMS, but make sure to get earlier ones like "what makes Herr R.run amok?", "In a year of thirteen moons" etc.

If you're a Fassbinder fan, then these are movies you'll want in your collection. I love the scene in one movie where the ex boyfriend is dancing along to a Jerry Lewis musical number on tv.

Granted I haven't seen the dvd, or the features (these films have been released seperately for a while though), I can easily say these are some of Fassbinder's masterworks.

Both are haunting, touching, and unflinching in that sense.

Fassbinder was a true master, and these films accentuate that.

In A Year With 13 Moons is a little odd as a film, but what film of Fassbinder's isn't? But Martha is definitely something else and well worth seeing (more so than 13 Moons at least).

Regardless, if the picture quality lives up to the quality of the films, this shouldn't be a set a fan of Fassbinder (or world cinema in general) should miss.
