Details

Rainer Werner Fassbinder directs this drama, the first film in his 'West German Trilogy' which offers commentary upon the reconstruction of the Federal Republic after the War.

Maria Braun marries a young soldier amid the Allied bombing raids of World World II the day before he must return to the Russian front. Awaiting his return in 1945, she is informed of his death and must endure and navigate the post-war years alone.

Against the backdrop of the German Wirtschaftswunder (economic miracle), she determinedly gains material prosperity at the head of a growing industrial empire. Centred on an astonishing performance from Fassbinder regular Hanna Schygulla in the lead role, The Marriage of Maria Braun took over four million Deutschmarks in its home country, and made over a million dollars in the US.
