Professor Mamlock( Visual )

14 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Jewish chief surgeon in Berlin, Professor Mamlock believes in reason, humanism and his country. As 1933 begins, he remains blind to the increasing anti-Semitism around him. He is troubled by those with opposing political views and throws his communist-leaning son out of the house. And he cannot believe that his daughter is driven from her school because she is Jewish. As the Nazis consolidate their power and new racial laws bar Mamlock from working at his hospital, his devastation leaves him no alternative. This film is based on the 1933 play written by Friedrich Wolf-a German-Jewish physician and renowned activist playwright, as well as the father of the director-in exile in Switzerland and France. The play premiered at the Kaminski Yiddish Theater in Warsaw in 1934. In 1938, a first film adaptation was produced in the USSR by Herbert Rappaport and Adolf Minkin
Divided heaven = Der geteilte himmel( Visual )

After a breakdown, Rita returns to her childhood village in 1961. As she recovers, she remembers the past two years: her love for the chemist Manfred, ten years her senior; how his enthusiasm about his new chemical process turned to bitter disappointment in the face of official rejection; how he escaped to West Berlin a few weeks before the Wall was built and hoped that she would follow him. This East German classic is praised by critics as one of Germany's 100 Most Important Films. It is based on Christa Wolf's internationally-renowned novel, which was criticized in the GDR for questioning the construction of the Wall. Produced during a brief cultural thaw in the early 1960s, this film was strongly influenced by the French Nouvelle Vague

12 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ein DDR-Bildhauer wird bei der Ausübung seines Berufes durch Bürokratie, Banausentum und kleinbürgerliche Ressentiments behindert. Vor allem sein Bildnis eines nackten Sportlers löst beim Auftraggeber - einem Fußballclub - peinliche Verwicklungen aus. Leise, episodische Filmsatire des 1982 verstorbenen DEFA-Regisseurs Konrad Wolf, der charakteristische Details des DDR-Alltags aufs Korn nimmt und die widerspruchsvolle Situation des Künstlers in seiner Gesellschaft beschreibt. Inhaltlich und gestalterisch differenziert und anspruchsvoll, einer der besten DEFA-Filme überhaupt." []
Solo Sunny by Konrad Wolf( Book )

7 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geschichte einer jungen Schlagersängerin, die mit einer mittelmäßigen Band durchs Land zieht und an ihrem großen Auftritt - ihrem Solo - arbeitet. Ihr hoch gesetzter Lebensanspruch, ihr Suchen nach menschlicher Bindung und ihre entschiedene Abwehr von Gleichgültigkeit, Mittelmaß und vorschneller Zufriedenheit machen es ihr schwer, ihre Identität zu finden. Sehr realistischer, die Individualität des Menschen betonender, kinowirksamer Gegenwartsfilm. In der Offenheit der Konfliktdarstellung zu zurückhaltend. Empfehlenswert (Kath. Inst.f. Med. Inf.; fb 3056). <dt.>
