The 19th century. In the remote Alpine village of Tolzbad, people talk quietly and restrain their movements lest avalanches come and kill them. This atmosphere lends itself to repressed emotions. Johann is a student lusting after his mother. She is an old flame of the mysterious Count Knotkers. Klara is attracted to her father. He lusts after his other daughter. This leads to duels and suicidal plunges galore. Sexual frenzies teem in this world of repression, setting off incestuous love triangles and quadrangles with deadly consequences

Geschichte einer Frau ( visu )
2 editions published in 1991 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Martha ist eine moderne, geistreiche Frau, "gefangen" im Körper einer 80jährigen. Die junge Krankenschwester Anna, die sie im ambulanten Pflegedienst betreut, ist ihr über die Jahre zur Verbündeten und Freundin geworden. Sie versteht und unterstützt Marthas eigenen Lebensstil und ihren Drang zur Unabhängigkeit. Die Welt, die sie umgibt, ist Martha viel zu zynisch und zu herzlos, als daß sie die gesellschaftlichen Konventionen ihres Alters für sich akzeptieren könnte. Mit Humor und Witz führt sie ihren eigenen Kampf gegen eine bornierte Gesellschaft, die jeden alten Menschen beim Anzeichen des Verfalls auf das Abstellgleis befördern möchte. Mit Nachdruck vertritt sie ihre eigenen Vorstellungen von Moral und lebt nach ihren eigenen Gesetzen. Durch den Tod ihres Nachbarn Billy wird sie jedoch aus dem Gleis geworfen: Erschöpft und deprimiert über den Verlust des Freundes, vernachlässigt sie sich selbst. Ihre zunehmende Vergeßlichkeit bringt sie in Gefahr und führt zu Unfällen. Ihr Sohn und die zuständigen Behörden beschließen, sie in ein Altenheim einzuweisen. Martha jedoch entscheidet anders über ihr Leben - ohne Würde und das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung kann sie nicht leben, und sie trifft eine letzte Entscheidung ... GESCHICHTE EINER FRAU gilt als der bisher beste und überzeugendste Film des australischen Regisseurs Paul Cox.

[Australian cinema : between cultures] ( visu )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
These were the first Australian features to take up the subject of the difficulties faced by migrants in postwar Australia. Both films were made from first hand experience - the involvement of first and second generation migrants, of Turkiewicz as writer-director and Jan Sardi as writer (Moving Out). Silver City dramatises the often alienating experience of the migrant arriving in a new country. Moving Out concerns the everyday conflicts of an Italian teenager. In the latter the struggle for personal identity is complicated by class differences - the dislocation of moving from working class Fitzroy to middle class Doncaster in outer suburbia

George Oliphant braucht als Aufsichtsratsvorsitzender eines großen Pharmakonzerns ganz dringend eine steuerliche Abschreibungsmöglichkeit. Er entschließt sich zur Stiftung einer repräsentativen Skulptur an die Nationalgalerie. Das bringt Prestige und hilft ihm aus seinen aktuellen Finanznöten. Seine nutzlose Tochter Georgina wird mit der Überwachung des Projektes betraut. In der lokalen Schickeria wird sie auf der Suche nach einem geeigneten Künstler schnell fündig: Sie beauftragt die Bildhauerin Lily mit der Schaffung eines monumentalen modernen David. Die glaubt, in dem glatzköpfigen Arbeitslosen Karl-Heinz Applebaum ein ideales Modell gefunden zu haben. Die Perfektion seines Körpers kommt Lilys künstlerischen Ansprüchen ebenso entgegen wie den sexuellen Begierden Georginas, die seit kurzem zur Bekämpfung ihrer Depressionen auf eine Designerdroge mit aphrodisierender Komponente vertraut. Dem scheuen und sexuell unterversorgten Karl-Heinz kommt die Affäre mit Georgina nicht ungelegen, denn seine verklemmte Ehefrau Cecilia hält ein enthaltsames Eheleben für normal seit sie zur Anhängerin von Baba Charles geläutert worden ist. Dieser moderne New Age-Guru, ehemaliger Jesuit und Gründer des "Zentrums für synchrone Bewußtheit", interessiert sich jedoch mehr für Geld als für spirituelle Suche und Erleuchtung. Und nun wittert Baba Charles eine Chance, über Cecilia Applebaum an das Geld der Oliphants heranzukommen.
