By age of thirty four, German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder had already directed twenty-two feature films. In 1978, he embarked upon a project to trace the history of postwar Germany in a series of films told through the eyes of three remarkable women. Fassbinder's three films The Marriage Of Maria Braun, Veronika Voss and Lola-the BRD (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) Trilogy-would garner him the international acclaim for which he had always yearned and place his name foremost in the canon of New German Cinema. The Criterion Collection is proud to present these films for the first time ever in home video.
Once-beloved Third Reich-era starlet Veronica Voss (Rosel Zech) lives in obscurity in postwar Munich. Struggling for survival and haunted by past glories, the forgotten star encounters sportswriter Robert Krohn (Hilmar Thate) in a rain-swept park and intrigues him with her mysterious beauty. As their unlikely relationship develops, Krohn comes to discover the dark secrets behind the faded actress' demise. Based on the true story of a World War II movie star, Veronica Voss is wicked satire disguised as a 1950s thriller.
