    The film's full title, not used by distributors, is: Fontane Effi Briest oder Viele, die eine Ahnung haben von ihren Möglichkeiten und Bedürfnissen und dennoch das herrschende System in ihrem Kopf akzeptieren durch ihre Taten und es somit festigen und durchaus bestätigen. (Translation: Fontane Effi Briest or Many who have a notion of their potential and needs, and who nevertheless in their heads accept the ruling system and thereby consolidate and downright confirm it.)

    Great b/w cinematography, elliptic storytelling. I can imagine it's rather hard to follow it if you haven't read Fontane's novel. 5 years 8 months ago

    Truly remarkable for the 70s, ahead of its time... but is what Fassbinder always brings to the table with his magnificent films! 6 years 6 months ago
