Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property. A well-meaning sportswriter tries to save Veronika from herself, sacrificing his own personal happiness - and the life of his girlfriend Cornelia Froeboess - in the process. Allegedly an amalgam of several true stories, Veronika Voss is the second of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy" (the others are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola)

From the very beginning of his incandescent career, the New German Cinema enfant terrible Rainer Werner Fassbinder refused to play by the rules.

In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die tragische Geschichte eines Transsexuellen in der Großstadt Frankfurt, der an seiner Umwelt langsam zugrundegeht. Fassbinder stilisiert die Passion seines Helden zu einer virtuos inszenierten Reise durch die Zwielichtzonen einer bundesdeutschen Metropole. Wüste Polemik steht neben poetischer Sensibilität, Kolportage neben literarischen Querverweisen auf Döblin und Schopenhauer; Schockbilder kontrastieren mit sentimentalen Idyllen. Einer der intimsten Fassbinder-Filme, der durch seine radikale Subjektivität aufrüttelt." [film-dienst]
