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.

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.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder made 47 films in 12 years and died at the age of 37. These two films are among his several masterpieces. MARTHA features an extraordinary 360 degree camera pan that only remains more breathtaking over time. IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS is especially exceptional as Fassbinder designed the production, wrote the script, operated the camera, directed and edited the picture. The film's last scene features a long complex camera movement that would have seriously challenged any master cinematographer with decades of experience. These films are often difficult to watch, difficult to reflect upon, and are also filled with unexpected brilliant humor. The reality of Fassbinder's achievement as an artist is staggering; even his slightest films have redeeming qualities that reward repeated viewings. This DVD package is as much a treasure as it is a bargain, representing a depth of substance and quality of film making that no longer exists in the world (I wish that was a hyperbolic statement). If you don't know these films, prepare to be staggered, stunned, and yes, even entertained.
