Als der Handlungsreisende Gregor Samsa eines Morgens erwacht, hat er sich in einen Riesenkäfer verwandelt. Die Familie ist schockiert, nimmt aber zunächst Anteil an Gregors Schicksal. Doch als dieser weiter verwahrlost, wird er zur Belastung ... Kafkas weltberühmte Erzählung in einer klassischen und werkgetreuen Verfilmung: Gregors äussere Verwandlung wird nicht gezeigt, lässt sich aber aus dem Entsetzen der Angehörigen ablesen. Ganz im Sinne Kafkas bleibt es der Fantasie des Zuschauers überlassen, sich das Unfassbare vorzustellen. (DVD-Hülle)

Krieg und Frieden & Der Kandidat ( visu )
2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"This two-hour documentary and fiction film was a cooperative writing effort by five different German writers and/or directors. Böll was responsible for three fictive episodes at the end of the film that promote an anti-nuclear, pro-peace message ("Space Talk," "Atom Bunker," and "Kill Your Sister"). Documentary footage of Chancellors Helmut Kohl and Helmut Schmidt in action, along with various European and American leaders highlight the urgent issues of the day. At a time when this film partly addresses these issues and partly hedges its bets, religious leaders in Europe were coming out with a very strong anti-war statement."--Allmovie
