Storyline

Germany, 1968: The priest's daughters Marianna and Juliane both fight for changes in society, like making abortion legal. However their means are totally different: while Juliane's committed as a reporter, her sister joins a terroristic organization. After she's caught by the police and put into isolation jail, Juliane remains as her last connection to the rest of the world. Although she doesn't accept her sister's arguments and her boyfriend Wolfgang doesn't want her to, Juliane keeps on helping her sister. She begins to question the way her sister is treated.

Prime Example of New German Cinema
27 March 2002 | by (Preston, England) – See all my reviews

"Die Bleierne Zeit" (German Sisters) is a prime example of the New German Cinema phase of the late seventies and early eighties. The film follows two sisters, both trying to assert their feminism through different means; one writes articles for a magazine, the other a member of the Bader Meinhof gang. The film deals mainy with the emotional viewpoint of Marianne, the journalist, as she struggles through the tests that life throws at her. Typical of a film of this period, the film is often bleak and focuses on building the scene rather than dialogue. Fans of New German Cinema will love it, anyone else should steer well clear as the film lacks any pace and struggles to hold your attention. Rating: A poor 3/10.
