Audience Reviews for Martha

  • Jul 25, 2011
    Wicked! Fassbinder is one of the few directors that can create high comedy instead of melodrama out of a borgeois, sado-masochistic relationship.

    Fassbinder goes in a 'mad-bourgeois-thriller' mode, scrutininsing a marriage that can best be described as sadomachostic. This is one of my favourite Fassbinder films, it is amazing!
