Housekeeper Angela Winkler’s privacy is shattered by a police investigation and attendant press scrutiny after a one-night stand with fugitive suspected terrorist Jürgen Prochnow. Heinrich Böll’s best-selling novel, written in response to the German political climate and the tabloid sensationalism triggered by the Red Army Faction’s terrorist activities, was swiftly adapted and co-directed by Schlöndorff and von Trotta—and the story remains all too timely.
