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)

The Lost honor of Katherina Blum = Die Verlorene ehre der Katharina Blum by Volker Schlorndorff( visu )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in German and held by 6 libraries worldwide
SUMMARY: "This is one of a handful of German productions of the 1970s critically acclaimed by world cinema. "Die verlorene Ehre der Katerina Blum" tells of the seemingly innocent love affair of a young woman with a man who turns out to be a fugitive bank robber. Twisting and turning the story to make it more "readable" a tabloid reporter shamelessly destroys the woman's reputation, even leading to her arrest as an "accomplice" to the crimes committed by her "boyfriend". The film shows in detail how the situation impacts many people, including Katerina's employers, neighbors, family memebers. All speak highly of her, yet the newspapers always manage to print distorted facts, embellishments and outright lies. The ending, though unexpected and shocking, will satisfy the viewer, who by now completely empathises with the title character who had been "railroaded" by the press for no other purpose than to sell more papers. A five star classic." IMDB
