Martha

Martha is a 1974 TV film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

As events unfold Martha's life appears fated, theatrical, contrived.
Estrangement, manipulation, cruelty and outright masochism are major themes in this uncomfortable, hard hitting film.

Watching this will put a big lump in your throat. It is most certainly worth it, but not for the faint hearted.
The cinematography is outstanding but as usual I have concentrated on the sartorial offerings rather than show you scenes that might give away more of the story.

Here goes:













Hope you're all having a great second half to the week :)

  6. It sounds intriguing, but I'm still recovering from the über-depressing Biutiful last night. Buff. The costumes here are definitely inspiring however; I love that first dress with the necktie!
