German Romanticism at its most expressively romantic.

In late 18th-century Germany, beautiful aristocratic sisters Charlotte and Caroline both fall in love with the controversial young writer Friedrich Schiller. Defying the conventions of their time, the sisters decide to share their love with Schiller. What begins playfully, almost as a game among the three of them, soon turns serious. This large-canvas, brilliantly acted work of intense emotions and literary eloquence is a cinematic tour de force by director Dominik Graf (see our "Secret Master" retrospective, pages ##-##). [15]
