Critic Reviews for Bolwieser (The Stationmaster's Wife)
Follows along the Sirkian themes of dissecting the petit bourgeois.
The film is often compared to Madame Bovary, but the overall effect is closer to that of Von Sternberg's The Devil is a Woman.
A misanthropic fairy tale so lushly designed and photographed it seems to have been conceived in a fever dream.
When Rainer Werner Fassbinder is good, he is very, very good. And when he is bad, he makes Bolweiser.
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.
