Country: West Germany, Italy
Year: 1968
Synopsis: Based on a (fictional) diary by Bach's second wife, Anna Magdalena, the film centers on the impact of working conditions on a marriage. "The point of departure for our chronicle came from the idea to try to make a film in which music was not used as accompaniment or as a commentary but as an aesthetic material. One of the film’s attractions will be that we show people making music, we show people really achieving something in front of the camera." (Jean-Marie Straub)
