And, despite the fluidity of the filmmaking, The Stationmaster's Wife is an awful lot of misery in just one sitting.

"The Stationmaster's Wife" lacks the visual vitality, originality and dramatic force of his other films.

A misanthropic fairy tale so lushly designed and photographed it seems to have been conceived in a fever dream.

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.

Fassbinder crafts a fascinating examination of passion and pettiness, with Elisabeth Trissenaar's powerhouse performance at its potent core.
