Ludwig II - Glanz und Elend eines Königs by Helmut Käutner ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A romantic, spectacular production portraying the life of Ludwig II (1845-1886), the Bavarian 'Fairytale King'. Ludwig turned away from politics at an early stage, instead indulging his passion for the arts. The film recounts his life from his ascent to the throne to his mysterious death in Lake Starnberg. It also describes Ludwig's friendship with Richard Wagner, follows his relationship with Elizabeth (Sissi), later Empress of Austria, and tells of his passion for building magnificent castles. Helmut Käutner portrays Ludwig as a lonely ruler who slowly falls prey to madness. The popular actor O.W. Fischer is perfectly cast in his role as the Bavarian king
Die Rote ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a novel by Alfred Andersch, Helmut Käutner's film tells the story of a young woman, Franziska (Ruth Leuwerik), who can no longer bear her mundane life in Germany, a marriage sunk in routine, and a harmless, lifeless love affair. She goes to Venice and makes new acquaintances, but these all fall into the same old pattern; among them is a former British officer and spy who uses her to get revenge on a Nazi. So Franziska takes flight again. The film tells the story of this flight from boredom and routine, analyses the stagnation of society, and as in era of Michelangelo Antonioni in Italy, it depicts melancholy landscapes of the soul

5 editions published between 1958 and 1970 in German and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein junger Mann der Wiener Gesellschaft hat aus unglücklicher Liebe zu Genia Hofreiter Selbstmord begangen. Als ihr Gatte, der Industrielle Friedrich Hofreiter, den Abschiedsbrief an seine Frau liest, erscheint ihm die Treue seiner Frau, die dieser Brief offenbart, als unverständlich. Friedrich Hofreiter ist ein alternder Bonvivant der Gesellschaft, der bald da, bald dort liebt. Der Schein dieser Ehe wurde bisher nur wegen des gemeinsamen Kindes und der gesellschaftlichen Stellung gewahrt. Eben hat Friedrich eine Liaison mit Frau von Natter beendet, da entflammt er bereits für das Mädchen Erna. Um Erna wiederzusehen, arrangiert er eine Tour an den Völser Weiher in den Dolomiten. Friedrich fährt mit seinem Freund Mauer, der Erna liebt. Diese Tatsache hindert ihn nicht, sich mit Erna zu liieren. In seiner Abwesenheit hat sich der Marinekadett Otto von Aigner unsterblich in Genia verliebt. Diesmal glaubt sie nicht mehr, die Treue halten zu müssen. Der nachts unerwartet zurückkehrende Friedrich sieht den jungen Mann aus dem Fenster seiner Frau steigen. Er fordert ihn zum Duell und tötet ihn. Diese Tragikkomödie bringt eine Seelenanalyse der großbürgerlichen Wiener Gesellschaft der Vorkriegszeit. In den ebenso illusionslosen wie sensiblen gedämpften und abgestuften Szenen ersteht noch einmal das Bild einer sich selbst zum Untergang geleitenden Welt. [...]
