Critic Reviews for In a Year with 13 Moons (In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

  • "Moons," in fact, is suspiciously easy to kiss off. It can be tedious and silly. Yet Fassbinder is too brilliant to be dismissed.

  • In Fassbinder's portrait of the gleamingly rebuilt Frankfurt as an emotionally devastated wasteland, Fascism-the need of some to dominate and of others to endure-comes off as a woeful constant of the heart.

  • 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.

  • In a Year with 13 Moons is an important film in director Rainer Werner Fassbinder's career. [Full Review in Spanish]

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