Die Marquise von O... / La marquise d'O... / The Marquise of O (1976) DVD9
Set in Italy during the 18th century, this film tells the story of Julietta, a widowed marquise (Edith Clever). During a battle near her town, she is assaulted by several soldiers, but is rescued by a Russian count (Bruno Ganz). The Count immediately falls in love and asks to marry the marquise. However, she feels obligated to her late husband's memory and puts the Count off for a while. Within a few weeks, the Marquise finds herself pregnant, but she insists that she has not touched another man since her husband's death. Not surprisingly, her mother (Edda Seippel), father (Peter Luehr) and brother (Otto Snader) don't believe her and reject her for the shame she has brought upon the family name. She even goes so far as to place an advertisement in the newspapers seeking the father of her child.
