Pioniere in Ingolstadt Pioneers in Ingolstadt ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A group of military engineers and soldier/laborers arrive in the small town of Ingolstadt, where they will begin the construction of bridge linking it directly with the rest of the country. Alma and Berta are housemaids who see the soldiers as more than a distraction: Berta wants desperately to believe in love, and Alma doesn't believe it can exist. The soldiers are bored, boozing and brawling during their free time, and coldly calculating about the improbability of love. Adapted from a 1929 play by Marieluise Fleisser, the film takes place in Fassbinderland: the Pioneers appear to be young Nazis, Alma's hairstyle and dresses are from the 1940s, but Berta's minidresses are decidedly from the late 1960s. Despite or perhaps because of the arrival of the Pioneers, Ingolstadt's inhabitants seem to be cut off from--yet still part of--the rest of the world, as if the town is encased in glass
The Fassbinder collection ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Martha: While vacationing with him in Rome, virginal 31-year-old librarian Martha Heyer loses her father to a heart attack. She doesn't know it but she has already met Helmut Salomon, her future husband, whom she expects to be the source of her individual and sexual fulfillment. After marriage however, Helmut, with chilling inscrutability, subjects her to constant physical and psychological tortures. Martha is an unrelenting depiction of the methodical way a bourgeois male reduces his wife to a state of absolute subjection, in accordance with Fassbinder's belief that marriage was the only socially accepted form of a completely sadomasochistic relationship
