Die Blechtrommel = The tin drum by Volker Schlöndorff( Visual )

36 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in German and French and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society, Oskar rejects both, and, on his third birthday, refuses to grow. Caught in a baffling state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out at all he surveys with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding, chaotic world marches onward to the madness and folly of World War II."--Container

Story about Oskar Matzerath, who at age three decides to stop growing. For the next two decades, during the Nazi reign in Eastern Europe, he remains frozen in size, suspended in the outraged innocence of childhood.

Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach( Visual )

3 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in German and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a documentary reflection on the last 27 years of Johann Sebastian Bach's life. Straub and Huillet are not prepared to speculate on motivation and personal lives beyond what is revealed in available documents. Bach's life is presented principally through his music in performance by 20th century musicians in 18th century mode. The economic and social context is provided by the narration (mainly Anna Magdalena's monologue) derived chiefly from Bach's letters and necrology written by one of his sons presented in the original form of the language. Implicit in Straub's approach is the position that dramatic re-enactment of historical material is inherently deceptive. The view of Bach as an uncompromising artist hampered by society emerges through the film's discursiveness
Jung Törless = Young Torless( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young Törless is to go to boarding school. His experiences there, the merciless torments of the pupils among themselves and the unsatisfactory answers of his teachers make it clear to Törless that good and bad cannot be differentiated in life. 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
