Stein (East Germany)

Director: Egon Günther
Starring: Etienne Charle, Eveline Dahm
Actor Ernst Stein, having abdicated from the stage in 1968 in protest of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, has long since retreated from the world around him. In a remote house encircled by an overgrown garden, he lives in a world of dreams and memories. Suddenly, in 1989, an out-of-kilter society sends forth its progeny. Young people, tramps and characters of all sorts take refuge with Stein for a short span, carrying the turmoil of the times into his house. Written by DEFA Film Library
Controversial scene: 12-yo Laura (Eveline Dahm) seen full frontal nude while taking off her clothes for a bath.
