A Love in Germany (Eine Liebe in Deutschland) (1983)
Critic Consensus: Hanna Schygulla's thoroughly compelling performance isn't quite enough to outweigh A Love in Germany's leaden execution -- but it comes close.

Critic Reviews for A Love in Germany (Eine Liebe in Deutschland)
While you know it's all going to turn out rather badly, you can't help but be seduced by star Hanna Schygulla.
Though A Love in Germany may well be about 'ordinary' fascism it fails to measure up to the competition of Germany, Pale Mother and others of that kind.
[Schygulla] gives what must be called a triumphant performance, one that ranks with the best of her work with Fassbinder, in a film that must be the most romantic ever made by Mr. Wajda.
The sheer accumulation of contextual detail overwhelms and diminishes the narrative of amour foil at the film's centre.
Why great directors occasionally deliver an outrageous clunker is anyone's guess, but here's another one for the books -- A Love in Germany, Andrzej Wajda's meditation on the banality of evil, with the emphasis on banality.
