In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden: Elvira Weishaupt began life as Erwin. After growing up in an orphanage, Erwin was apprenticed to a butcher. As an adult, Erwin had fallen in love with Anton, the manager of the slaughterhouse where he worked. Anton's offhand comment "too bad you're not a girl" sent Erwin to Casablanca to become Elvira. Upon her return, however, Anton rejects Elvira. Convincing neither as a man nor as a woman, to others or to herself, she begins a journey into her past, revisiting old haunts, trying to re-or de-construct the person she's become. In a Year of 13 Moons is a distilled, brutal, unrelenting, deeply personal, and emotionally honest exposition into the human existential quest for love, acceptance, spiritual passion, and inclusion

In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the object of his affection off-handedly commented "too bad you're not a girl", Erwin disappeared to Casablanca and returned as Elvira. Now, adrift and alone amid the maze of the streets of Frankfurt, Elvira revisits the people and places of his past, desperately searching for the identity and love she's never known. Fassbinder's most personal film defies categorization, equal parts melodrama, dark comedy, tragedy, and almost clinical character study, and is ultimately a tender and moving portrait of a lost and fragile soul
