Critic Reviews for Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands (Fassbinder: at elske uden at kræve)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

There is no film-by-film analysis of his major works, which include "The Marriage of Maria Braun" and "Berlin Alexanderplatz," or the connection from one to the next.

Thomsen culls wisely from Fassbinder's filmography to illustrate the kino-giant's abiding themes, patricide and masochism among them.

Apr 26, 2016 | Full Review…

To be fair, [Director Christian Braad Thomsen] makes judicious use of clips from Fassbinder's films, but "Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands" would be far less fascinating without the 1978 Fassbinder interview.

... it is a good first step for those who do not know anything about Fassbinder and his work. [Full review in Spanish]

Dec 28, 2017 | Full Review…

To Love Without Demands attempts to reconcile Fassbinder's complexities by essaying his emotional landscape: his childhood, his family, and the relationships he shared with his collaborators.

Thomsen's is a confused, partial, awkwardly constructed tribute that is an interesting addition to the mass of commentary on Fassbinder.

Audience Reviews for Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands (Fassbinder: at elske uden at kræve)

Though some may find strange that Hannah Schygulla is only briefly mentioned, this is a very interesting documentary made with love about one of the most important and prolific directors of all time, and it focuses mostly on his fantastic body of work, themes and approach.
