A key film of the New German Cinema, The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum is a paranoid political thriller that grips from its opening moments and never lets up. Young housekeeper Katharina meets a charming man at a party and spends the night with him. Unbeknownst to her, he is a criminal on the run from the police. Her brief night with this alleged terrorist is enough to bring her quiet life into ruins and subject her to police surveillance. Exploited by cheap newspaper sensationalism, Katharina slowly becomes a wider target, with anonymous phone calls and letters, sexual advances and threats all testing the limits of her dignity and sanity. A stinging commentary on state power, individual freedom and media manipulation, the film feels as relevant today as it was in 1975. New Digital Restoration
