Hanna Schygulla’s favourite movie

 

Asking Hanna Schygulla – the great muse of Rainer Werner Fassbinder in many of his weird and wonderful movies – was never likely to make for a conventional pick. And she went for a movie described by the New York Times as ‘a provocation’: Detachment, starring Adrien (The Piano) Brody and, among others, Christina (Mad Men) Hendricks. Hanna Schygulla clearly has a taste for movies that poke you in the eye.

Hanna Schygulla: splendid and mysterious

Out of range of analysis 

It came out in 1979. The Marriage of Maria Braun. Surely the stand-out movie among the three dozen plus made by the brilliant but doomed German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder. His muse in most of those films was Hanna Schygulla. Now, amazingly, and several decades on, she’s my latest guest on Talking Germany. I can remember precisely where, when and with whom I saw the film. And my rapture at this striding, cruel, unknowable, hurt and hurting woman. She was a diva, a sex symbol — and about a million miles from where I was.
