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.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

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.

This movie is so good. Beautifully shot, Fassbinder at his best. Heartbreaking, strange, beautiful. Beware of gruesome slaughterhouse scene..
