Buddenbrooks: A sweeping tale of the rise and fall of a wealthy merchant family torn between loyalty and personal freedom. Doktor Faustus: Driven by a single-minded search for a totally new musical idiom, composer Adrian Leverkühn makes a pact with the devil with a very high price, the total renunciation of love and the gradual deterioration of the mind and body.

The boy leaves the boarding school at his own request after a short while. The incipient social and personal deformation in Musil's novel is skillfully implemented by Schlöndorff in close correspondence with the text but also in a more distant manner

Acclaimed as the greatest German novel written since the end of World War II, The Tin Drum is the autobiography of thirty-year-old Oskar Matzerath who has lived through the long Nazi nightmare and who, as the novel begins, is being held in a mental institution. Willfully stunting his growth at three feet for many years, wielding his tin drum and piercing scream as anarchistic weapons, he provides a profound yet hilarious perspective on both German history and the human condition in the modern world

Das schwarz-weiß-rote Himmelbett( Visual )

2 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ein "gesellschaftskritischer" Rolf-Thiele-Film, der mit seiner satirischen Schilderung der amourösen Abenteuer eines Unterprimaners die doppelbödige Lebensauffassung und die Freizügigkeit der "besseren Gesellschaft" in der Zeit vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg aufs Korn nimmt. Bis in die Nebenrollen hinein hervorragend besetzt, kann der Film zudem mit einigen Regie-Gags überraschen." [film-dienst.de]
