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.

Welt am Draht = World on a wire by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

46 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World on a Wire is a gloriously paranoid, boundlessly inventive take on the future from German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder. With dashes of Stanley Kubrick, Kurt Vonnegut, and Philip K. Dick, Fassbinder tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant hero Fred Stiller (Klaus Lowitsch), a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate conspiracy. At risk? (Virtual) reality as we know it. Originally made for German television, this recently rediscovered, three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the world of tomorrow from one of cinema's kinkiest geniuses

After spending four years in prison for killing his girlfriend, lumbering man-child Franz Biberkopf is finally released back into society. He wants to stay honest now he has left jail, but it is tough in the Alexanderplatz section of Berlin. After failing to succeed in several 'regular' jobs, he falls in with some old cohorts and an on-again, off-again association with thugs. Post-war society is crumbling, and it appears that nothing will bring it back.

Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss = Veronika Voss by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

70 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 487 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)
