Fraulein Else 1929
In deciding to adapt Arthur Schnitzler's controversial 1924 novella Fraulein Else - told as an interior monologue - for the screen, Paul Czinner directed the dazzling Elisabeth Bergner in one of her greatest performances, as a young woman forced to confront sexual and psychological humiliation and degradation in an attempt to save her father (Albert Bassermann) from disgrace.

The film is accompanied by an abstractly modern keyboards, guitars, percussion, electronics and vocalized music score composed by Marlene Kuntz that is not at all connected to the film’s narrative.
