Movie Info

When her husband kills himself after going on a killing spree at the factory where he worked, Emma "Mother" Küsters (Brigitte Mira) finds herself the sudden object of a media frenzy. But, as her husband's violent end makes the news, Mother finds that no one will listen to her -- least of all the members of her own family. Her son Ernst (Armin Meier) skips town while her money-hungry daughter Corinna (Ingrid Caven) exploits her naivety to advance her career as a singer.

Audience Reviews for Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven

  • May 28, 2016
    Has pacing issues in the middle, but the viewer's patience is rewarded with two cracking endings.

    Fassbinder's satire looks at the life of a middle-aged woman and her family after the death of her husband. Comic at times, dramatic others, and cynical throughout, with quiet desperation undercutting everything, here is a film bored with thinking and thought and the perception of better living through either.
