Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( Visual )

54 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. "Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker -- controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils -- introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, [director] von Trotta...turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema." -- Container

He's worried for her, and offers to drive her to Rome. Along the way, his concern becomes romance, and romance leads to tragedy

Along with the live concert recording, a documentary film called ' ... Solar plexus of modernism' was made ... on the work's historical, contextual and musical exegesis."
