West Germany in 1973 is still feeling the after effects of the Second World War. Emmi, a cleaning lady almost of retirement age, lives a solitary life in Munich. A widow with adult children, she feels an unbearable sense of loneliness. One evening on her way home, she stops into a bar to wait out the rain. Here she meets Ali, a strapping young Moroccan immigrant. Despite the vast differences in their ages and cultures, Emmi and Ali embark upon a torrid love affair, marrying after only a few weeks.

Effi Briest, oder, Viele die eine Ahnung haben von ihren Möglichkeiten und ihren Bedürfnissen und trotzdem das herrschende System in ihrem Kopf akzeptieren durch ihre Taten und es somit festigen und durchaus bestätigen by Theodor Fontane( Visual )

82 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effi Briest is a radiant beauty, a vivacious blend of naivete and intelligence, forthrightness and willful self interest. She is married when very young to a much older Prussian diplomat and carried away to a remote Baltic port where she drifts into a brief, passionless affair with a local womanizer. The full effects are felt only later, in a chilling manifestation of the Prussian legal code
Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss Veronika Voss by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

69 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property. A well-meaning sportswriter tries to save Veronika from herself, sacrificing his own personal happiness - and the life of his girlfriend Cornelia Froeboess - in the process. Allegedly an amalgam of several true stories, Veronika Voss is the second of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy" (the others are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola)

An attempt to gauge the spirit of West Germany in the autumn of 1977.
