"What have we learned (and what might we have forgotten) from history's bloody backwash? Guilt, love, and history are three skeins, woven together to create human beings or, alternately, human monsters. The question of wartime culpability undergirds the May-December romance in postwar Berlin between Hanna, a weary-looking, sexually rapacious streetcar ticket-taker and Michael, a young schoolboy whom she seduces, ravenously and to his great delight. One day, Hanna is gone, with no explanation, and Michael grows into a promising young law student. His class attends a trial, where the new Germany judges the past and, by default, the lovers as well."--Container

Durant la Guerre du Golfe, le sergent Shaw se couvrit de gloire en sauvant à lui seul sa patrouille. Pourtant, son chef, le major Bennett Marco, doute de la véracité de cet héroïque exploit. En revanche, chaque nuit, ce dernier est assailli de rêves terrifiants où il se voit fait prisonnier avec ses hommes, soumis à d'atroces tortures et contraint de tuer froidement deux de ses soldats avec la complicité de Shaw. Après qu'un ancien compagnon d'armes, au bord du suicide, lui révèle qu'il est hanté par les mêmes visions, Marco alerte ses supérieurs.

1799: Eine schuldlos von einem russischen Grafen geschwängerte Marquise wird, nachdem ihr Zustand ruchbar geworden ist, von den Eltern des Hauses verwiesen.

Mit Sinn für die Absurdität der Geschichte legt Rohmer die ironische Moralkritik der Vorlage bloß, um daraus ein heiteres Plädoyer für die praktizierte Menschlichkeit jenseits bürgerlicher Konventionen zu entwickeln.
