For one of her most intimate dramas of female friendship, von Trotta paired up Hanna Schygulla with The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum star Angela Winkler. Outgoing literature professor Olga (Schygulla) befriends withdrawn painter Ruth (Winkler), and the intensity of their resulting bond surprises all concerned. “A delicate and penetrating study of (platonic) love between women.” (Sheila Johnstone, Time Out)
