The BRD Trilogy: Veronika Voss (original German title: Die Sehnsucht Der Veronika Voss) is the second film in the BRD trilogy directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It was shot on stark black and white film in 1982. It follows a former UFA actress named Veronika Voss who is now a morphine addict (played by Rosel Zech) living in Germany in the 1950s. Veronika's old claim to fame was that she used to be a close and personal friend of Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi's propaganda minister. Veronika's character is based loosely on the career of the actress Sybille Schmitz. Veronika meets Robert Krohn, a sports reporter who is unaware of Veronika's past career. Veronika is taken with his lack of knowledge and they begin a love affair even though Robert is already living with his girlfriend Henriette. Krohn finds out that Veronika is being controlled by a corrupt neurologist named Dr. Marianne Katz. Katz has Veronika addicted to opiates and is slowly taking all of her money. Will evil triumph? Yes, yes it will, as this is a dark and sad art film.moreless
