  • Set in Russia in 1919, shortly after the fall of the Czar, this allegorical love story tells the tale of an affair against the backdrop of a civil war. Magarethe von Trotta stars as a young woman who becomes involved with a sexually repressed Prussian soldier. When the soldier refuses her, the woman spirals into a psychosexual depression and begins sleeping with numerous men and championing the cause of the revolutionaries.

    Volker Schlondorff (THE TIN DRUM) directed this 1976 feature ripe with sexuality, the brutality of war, and even witchcraft. The ending of this heartbreaking work is unforgettable and unrelenting.
