THE LOST HONOR OF KATHARINA BLUM (dir. Margarethe von Trotta and Volker Schlöndorff, 1975, West Germany).
A housekeeper faces police detainment and libelous tabloids after sleeping with an accused terrorist. Directing with husband Volker Schlöndorff, Margarethe von Trotta unflinchingly depicts a woman confronting a savagely sanctimonious culture with defiance.
