Movie Info

This Rainer Werner Fassbinder drama centers around the lonely quest for love of Elvira Weishaupt, a man who became a woman to please his/her man. Just prior to that, Elivira had been jilted by her previous live-in partner, a man. She does the operation to win the heart of another, Anton. Unfortunately, the sex-change operation does not change the intended's mind; Anton is simply not interested. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Quintessential Fassbinder.

The subject invites easy compassion and pity, but Fassbinder's icy camera style keeps us at arm's length, calling up a much more complex response.

The story is as bizarre as Fassbinder himself seems to have been, cluing us into the darker side of his private life.

It's a passionate and messy film portraying loneliness, societal cruelties and victimization as powerful as its ever been presented on the screen.

Far-fetched and ultimately small, Fassbinder ties to put a metaphysical and cosmological wrapper arond all of this, leading to a very muddy experience.

One bizarre film, even for Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

Comes down to a series of operatic examinations of questions pertaining to free will, chance, cause and effect, moral responsibility, self-sacrifice and spiritual atonement.

Audience Reviews for In the Year of 13 Moons (In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden)

Fassbinder uses a personal loss as the starting point for another depressing story about personal exploitation, and the best thing is that he does not dare to offer easy answers. But the result seems also arbitrary, with his usual cold approach leaving little room for empathy.
