I recently managed to receive a VHS copy of this rarity. It unfortunately has no subtitles, but I am very familiar with the enjoy ("The Women," 1936), so it was a true pleasure to watch.Unlike Fassbinder's another made-for-television movies like FEAR OF FEAR or I ONLY WANT YOU TO LOVE ME, both of which should have been released theatrically as detail films, FRAUEN IN NEW YORK only really works as a tv product. It is "filmed theater" in the extreme the sets are very stagey, and slightly unreal in some cases. Every stage is filmed in single takes, with the camera zooming and panning to emphasize the various characters (very nice camera work, mind you, from Michael Ballhaus). The stage in the Reno hotel is remarkable in that the whole stage was shot through a large piece of glass with evenly spaced streams of water trickling down it (this is evidently meant to be one of the windows of the elegant hotel lobby). This strikingly visual stage territories this movie comfortably in Fassbinder's Chinese ROULETTE period.FRAUEN IN NEW YORK details one of Peer Raben's stranger scores (very related to his melody for QUERELLE, actually). The basic elements are choral singers, mixed with some synthesizers ethereal to tell the least, but thankfully subtle. In the stage where Mary is at the manicurist, there is this persistent synthesizer noodling in the background, giving the movie a true 70s avant-garde feel.Margit Carstensen shines the brightest as the cosmopolitan Sylvia who else in Fassbinder's troupe should have been so excellent for that role? And Fassbinder is very much at home in saying a storyline about catty women. I would tell that this is certainly deserving of a DVD release, as it is, if nothing else, a great tv piece.
Together with "Satansbraten/Satan's Brew" (1976), "Frauen In Fresh York/Women in Fresh York", based on the novel by Calire Boothe Luce (1903-1987), is R.W. Fassbinder's only comedy. To his work belong all genres, including documentaries, but no horror films ("Tenderness of the Wolves" (1973) was allegedly directed by Ulli Lommel, although it bears all signs of a real Fassbinder film and not only his production). More precise, the TV broadcasting of "Frauen In Fresh York" is a filmed performance of Fassbinder's theater group at the Hamburger Staatstheater. Very related to Fassbinder's "women movies", it shows the girl in the center and her development from ethics to opportunism, one should tell according to the (only soon established) motto "Good women come into heaven, terrible women everywhere". Mary Haines, who stands in the center of this movie, is first characterized as an outsider amidst all the another girls who scoop out their time by complaining about their husbands, but at the same time also profiting form there. Even then, when she is also betrayed by her husband, she wars for him in order to preserve her marriage. But all the boys are absent! There is not one single male role in the movie. Obviously, the discursively mediated presence of the male is sufficient. (Consistently, a boy had not even to marry a women: It would have been enough the meet her, to disappear and to send her cash each month.) From the 45 films that the Fassbinder Foundation counts, 10 have never been place either on VHS or DVD, 1 amongst them is banned, approx. 3-6 (depending if you are looking for a PAL or NTSC version) more films are not accessible anymore, and 1 is lost. Amongst the 10 mentioned films there are all theater pieces that Fassbinder filmed. Since Fassbinder was both a movie and a scene director, making them accessible would enlighten the interesting relationship between his theater and film production.
