Von Trotta's stunning story of two sisters: the orderly and efficient Maria (Jutta Lampe), and the dependent and resentful Anna (Gudrun Gabriel), who studies biology at university while Maria foots the tuition and bills. Though they are physical and emotional opposites, they can live neither with nor without each other. When Anna commits suicide, Maria attempts to reinvent Anna through Miriam, a lively typist in the office secretarial pool, who obliges Maria to weigh the balance inside herself instead of searching out opposite types to stabilize her needs. "Beautifully visualized, intelligently written, von Trotta's movie is a stunning achievement" (Carrie Rickey, Village Voice). German with English subtitles.
