- Schwestern, oder, die Balance des Glücks Sisters, or, The Balance of happiness /
- Two sisters share a complex and compelling relationship, emotionally codependent but psychologically conflicted as the balance of power dramatically shifts between them. Maria is a most proficient executive secretary, encouraging Anna to finish her studies and start a career. Anna seems dependent, emotionally and economically, on Maria. It's more than just sibling rivalry -- they are Siamese twin-like, bonded to one another, so that eventually it is uncertain as to who exploits and dominates whom. When Maria starts to develop a serious relationship with Maurice, the son of her boss, Anna broods, threatens to quit university, takes pills, and eventually takes a selfish and drastic step that plummets Maria into solitude.
