NOT RECONCILED, OR ONLY VIOLENCE HELPS WHERE VIOLENCE RULES

Nicht Versöhnt oder Es hilft nur Gewalt, wo Gewalt herrscht

Directed by Jean-Marie Straub
West Germany, 1965
Drama

Synopsis

As the directors hopscotch across the chronologies of Heinrich Böll’s novel, moving freely between the 1910s Kaiser autocracy and the 1950s Adenauer economic miracle, they chart the origins and legacy of Nazism, and the moral demands of obedience and sacrifice within the German bourgeois family.
