A once-beloved Third Reichâera starlet, Veronika Voss (Rosel Zech) lives in obscurity in postwar Munich. Struggling for survival and haunted by past glories, she encounters sportswriter Robert Krohn (Hilmar Thate) in a rain-swept park and intrigues him with her mysterious beauty. As their unlikely relationship develops, Robert comes to discover the dark secrets that brought about the decline of Veronikaâs career. Based on the true story of a World War II Ufa star, Rainer Werner Fassbinderâs Veronika Voss
is wicked satire disguised as 1950s melodrama.
