Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( Visual )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 839 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

Vaduz, 1983: ein Schauspieler kommt nach seinem Auftritt mit einem Mann ins Gespräch, erkennt sofort er die unverwechselbare Stimme und erschrickt über das müde Gesicht - Oskar Werner, weltberühmter Theatergott und oscarnominierter Filmstar. In dieser Nacht erzählt Werner sein erstaunliches Leben: ein Wiener Bub aus armen Verhältnissen, der früh an der "Burg" spielte, gegen die Nazis opponierte und nur knapp dem Tod entkam. Er gitb den Blick frei in den Abgrund einer gequälten Seele und auf die Tragik des Ruhms. Michael Degen ist Oskar Werner wirklich begegnet. Packend erzählt er von jener Nacht, schildert ein Leben, das durch finstere Zeiten, über Glanz und Triumph in die Selbstzerstörung führte, und berichtet von weiteren prägenden Erlebnissen, mit Gustaf Gründgens oder Ingmar Bergman. Ein sehr persönliches Buch, fast eine künstlerische Autobiographie
