Deutschland im Herbst Germany in autumn by Alf Brustellin ( Visual )
15 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in German and Italian and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Eleven leading filmmakers collaborated on this protest against Fascist tendencies in West Germany by reflecting on the tragic events of autumn 1977, when public official Hanns Martin Schleyer was kidnapped and murdered by the Baader-Meinhof group, whose members mysteriously died in prison. The contents of this quasi-documentary, omnibus film range from an elegiac sequence of the burial of the prisoners to newsreel clips of Rommel's cortege and a fictitious argument among TV executives about a controversial production of Antigone. In the amazing Fassbinder sequence, he interviews his mother, who had endorsed the dictatorship, then physically abuses his boyfriend. Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics."--Distributor website

Unbeknownst to one another, they separately become acquainted with Adam, a younger man, and fall in love with him.

A bourgeois family escapes the noise and crowding of Berlin for a summer in the country. Laura, Paul, and their children are joining Laura's mother Anna, her stepfather Robert, her half-brother Max, and her younger sister Sophie, who has been distant for years and arrives unexpectedly. Laura and Paul's marriage is in crisis, Anna's mother is dying, and Max spends all his time with his girlfriend. The shifting constellations of the family are revealed in individual conversations and encounters. The tragic irony is, of course, the incongruity between the stability of each character's identity in their own mind and the constantly changing roles each actually inhabits
