7 December 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A Jewish woman forced into prostitution during the time of World War II recognizes a former Nazi functionary as the man running for mayor in the west German town she is living in. Haunted by her past and the death of her parents, caused by this man, and the ignorance of the judiciary and even her husband, who rather want to forget about the past and concentrate on the future (Wirtschaftswunder era), she eventually decides to kill him and accept the penalty.

Beautifully photographed, this intense movie succeeds greatly in describing the agony of a woman facing a society which has already suppressed a past which she just cannot let rest. Thankfully, socialist propaganda is not very eminent in this movie, leaving it as a small, almost forgotten example of how east German filmmakers were dealing with the Nazi era. You are not going to find a movie about the topic like this from West Germany for almost a decade after this movie was made. See it if you can track it down.
