Effi Briest is a radiant beauty, a vivacious blend of naivete and intelligence, forthrightness and willful self interest. She is married when very young to a much older Prussian diplomat and carried away to a remote Baltic port where she drifts into a brief, passionless affair with a local womanizer. The full effects are felt only later, in a chilling manifestation of the Prussian legal code

The Sissi trilogy presents through heartwarming storytelling and undeniable visual beauty a Cinderella story in scrupulous detail, in three chronologically biographical films that, together, take nearly six hours to watch. Made between 1955-1957 by German director Ernst Marischka, Sissi, Sissi: The Young Empress, and Sissi: The Fateful Years of An Empress chronicle, in not-strictly historical terms, Elisabeth of Bavaria's marriage to her cousin, Franz Josef (Karlheinz Böhm), for which she is crowned Princess of Austria and, later, Queen of Hungary. Nicknamed Sissi (Romy Schneider), Elisabeth possesses fairy tale beauty and charm, from her early days in her Austrian schlosse, where she raises dachshunds, doves, and pet deer, to her latter days as regal ambassador of love, honesty, and generosity. The three films, taken as one sprawling epic, are as saccharine and idealized as The Sound of Music, with similar alpine landscapes, rivers, and castles dotting the sets. But Romy Schneider's magnetism is as strong as Julie Andrews's, and as one watches her horseback riding, learning manners and politics, having a baby, winning the hearts of Hungarians and Italians, or suffering with tuberculosis, it is quite difficult to turn the films off! The costuming and ceremonial pomp alone is riveting and serves as a fascinating glimpse, even if fictionalized, into 19th century aristocratic life. Each character in Sissi's family, including the reproachful mother-in-law, Sophie (Vilma Degischer), who constantly reprimands Sissi for her lack of formality and sophistication, and her warm parents, Ludovika and Max (Magda Schneider and Gustav Knuth) add infinite depth to this ambitious tale. The extras in the Sissi Collection, including "Forever My Love," a condensed, English-dubbed version lacking original score, and "Victoria in Dover," a precusor to the Sissi trilogy

After twenty years of working in a tyre factory, Herr Kuster reacts to the prospect of pending redundancy for him and his workmates, by killing one of his bosses and then committing suicide. His wife is deeply hurt by a sensational and inaccurate account of the incident in the gutter press, written by a opportunistic journalist who gained the favours of her daughter. Lacking comfort and support from her family, she becomes politicised, only to find that the Left too are only interested her husband's story for their own gain. The film continues the theme of the pressures of industrial society on the individual raised in "Why Does Herr R Run Amok?", as well as critiquing factionism in German politics. Made in twenty days the film originally ended with Mother Kuster's death, but Fassbinder shot an alternative happy ending

Martha: While vacationing with him in Rome, virginal 31-year-old librarian Martha Heyer loses her father to a heart attack. She doesn't know it but she has already met Helmut Salomon, her future husband, whom she expects to be the source of her individual and sexual fulfillment. After marriage however, Helmut, with chilling inscrutability, subjects her to constant physical and psychological tortures. Martha is an unrelenting depiction of the methodical way a bourgeois male reduces his wife to a state of absolute subjection, in accordance with Fassbinder's belief that marriage was the only socially accepted form of a completely sadomasochistic relationship
