Die Marquise von O___ .avi
This is a faithful rendering of the short story by Heinrich von Kleist about a young noblewoman at the time of the Napoleonic wars, who places a newspaper advertisement to ask the unknown father of the child she is carrying to come forward, so that she can marry him.
Made in 1973, directed by Eric Rohmer, starring Bruno Ganz and Edith Clever.
Every scene is beautifully composed, the script is perfect, while the passion and disgrace are turned to comedy and melodrama with equal facility by the restrained formality of Rohmer's direction.
The language is German, and the English subtitles are on the image, unfortunately, because that's how they were on the DVD.
