In the period of several days, Katharina's privacy and, particularly, her honor are destroyed, first by the police who terrorize her (believing she is the mistress of a suspected terrorist), and then by the yellow press, which creates in her name the image of a politicized Bonnie Parker.

"The story is set in Latvia in 1919, at the height of the Soviet Civil War. Margarethe von Trotta plays an aristocrat sympathetic to the Communist cause. Besides her ruinous habit of falling love with men who do not love her, Margarethe's tragic flaw is her refusal to acknowledge the cost of the revolution in terms of human lives."-- Allmovie

Deutschland im Herbst = Germany in autumn by Alf Brustellin( Visual )

4 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in German and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eleven leading filmmakers collaborated on this protest against Fascist tendencies in West Germany by reflecting on the tragic events of autumn 1977, when public official Hanns Martin Schleyer was kidnapped and murdered by the Baader-Meinhof group, whose members mysteriously died in prison. The contents of this quasi-documentary, omnibus film range from an elegiac sequence of the burial of the prisoners to newsreel clips of Rommel's cortege and a fictitious argument among TV executives about a controversial production of Antigone. In the amazing Fassbinder sequence, he interviews his mother, who had endorsed the dictatorship, then physically abuses his boyfriend. Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics."--Distributor website
