The search for congealed history
Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s second-but-last film does not show primarily the life and downfall of the UFA-star Sybille Schmitz, but gives, at the hand of the Schmitz-inspired, yet fictive character Veronika Voss an unvarnished and hopeless picture of the Bundesrepublik Germany in the 50ies. Part of Fassbinder’s “BRD-Trilogy”, it is also one of his 4 “women”-films, besides “Lola”, “Maria Braun”, and “Lili Marleen”.
It is hard to say if the main focus of this movie is the former UFA-star Veronika Voss or the sports reporter Robert Krohn. One rainy night, he meets, in a little forest amidst of Berlin, a crying little bundle of mensch who seems to have completely lost her orientation. She is not so much thankful for his help but astonished that he does not recognize her: the great Veronika Voss. After he accompanies the woman to her door, she continues to occupy his mind. He asks his older colleagues who confirm him that she was once a movies’ super-star, but now forgotten, divorced, impoverished, addicted and out of work. Soon, they meet again, and between Krohn, who is in a steady liaison, and Veronika, who sees in him one of her once many admirers, a very problematic love story starts which costs two humans’ lives, leaves an investigative mind back in despair, discloses the corruption between medicine and politics and portrays the deterrent situation in the post-war German film industry which used his former flagships as fuel.
R.W. Fassbinder got for this films the “Golden Bear” out of the hand of Jimmy Stewart who was his friend for many years. Fassbinder had been nominated for the highest German film price since a long time, but it was Stewart who realized that soon it might come too late. Fassbinder passed away only a few days after having received the Golden Bear.
Unusual, But A Highly Captivating Story With Memorable Performances
An unusual film, but with a captivating story and memorable performances by Zech and Thate. At times I didn’t know what to make of its odd soundtrack and enigmatic dialogue, but the more I watched, the more I enjoyed. I had only seen one other Fassbinder film before this one, which I didn’t care for. But Veronika Voss is a real success in my opinion, and a crazy interesting film to have come out of the early 80s.
