Fontane Effi Briest Reviews

Christopher Null

It's Fassbinder's arm's-length direction that makes Effi Briest come off as cold and detached instead of calculating and sad.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

In spite of achieved small-budget period flavor, the film is ponderously top-heavy in its setting up and complication.

Compelling viewing for the delicate way it unfolds and leaves a tingling feeling there's a lot more going on than it seems.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

The film demonstrates not only Fassbinder's usual superb technical control and ability to elicit superbly nuanced performances from his actors, but also an unprecedented affinity for literary adaptation and historical sensitivity.

The slow, deliberate pace is sometimes taxing, but this story of a 16-year-old girl locked in the boredom of a loveless marriage is perfectly suited to Fassbinder's stifling mise-en-scene.

It's visually beguiling -- its cameramen having found shades of gray between black and white I'm not sure I've seen before -- and it is performed by the Fassbinder stock company with the precision and style one seldom finds outside the legitimate theater.
