Film, Book and Opera are based on a Gertrud von le Fort Novel
9 September 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Please note that movie, book and opera are based on the Novel "Die Letzte am Schafott" ("The Last at the Scaffold" or "The Song at the Scaffold") by Gertrud von le Fort.

The German writer and poet lived from 1876 until 1971. She has written many books (for details check www.gertrud-von-le-fort.de).

Some of her other works have also been rewritten as movies or theatre plays, e.g. "Das Schweigen am Himmel" by Dallmayr, which you can also find in the IMDb database. This film is based on her book "Am Tor das Himmels".

If you liked the movie - as I am sure you undoubtedly will - you may want to check for a performance of the opera. Not surprisingly, this opera is staged quite often.
