30 Day Movie Meme: Day 26

Hurrying toward the end of the meme, today we arrive at my candidate for the freakishly weird movie ending:

OK, 'freakishly weird' is a matter of opinion, and I don't know of any film that has one. But I do remember that on seeing this film for the first time, on a rare school outing because our German teacher thought it would be good for us if we saw every Rainer Werner Fassbinder-film ever made, the ending came as a total surprise. We were never able, in our discussions afterwards, to determine whether Maria Braun had simply forgotten she'd left the gas on, and the explosion was an accident; or whether she knew perfectly well what she was doing and she blew her husband and herself up in an act of revenge.

Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer
