In a Year with 13 Moons Review


Often hailed as one of Fassbinder's best films, I find In a Year with 13 Moons one of his most obvious and least meaningful works. In this film, Fassbinder offers the (lengthy) story of a gay man who is abruptly dumped by his lover -- who decides he now likes women. So he does what anyone would do, right? He gets a sex change to become that woman. Naturally, it doesn't take. Far-fetched and ultimately small, Fassbinder ties to put a metaphysical and cosmological wrapper arond all of this, leading to a very muddy experience.

Aka In a Year of 13 Moons, In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden.
