"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

Die Marquise Von O-- = The Marquise of O-- by Éric Rohmer( Visual )

51 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1799: Eine schuldlos von einem russischen Grafen geschwängerte Marquise wird, nachdem ihr Zustand ruchbar geworden ist, von den Eltern des Hauses verwiesen. Heinrich von Kleists Novelle wurde in Eric Rohmers sensibler Verfilmung zum demonstrativen Gegenteil eines sentimentalen Dramas. 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.
