Deutscher Herbst

On September 5th 1977 left-wing insurgent group, the red army fraction kidnapped industrialist Hanns Martin Schleyer. The abduction kicked off “the German Autumn” – six weeks of hostage-taking, murder and intrigue.
It ended on 18 October, with the death of the leading figures of the first generation of the RAF in their prison cells, and the death of Schleyer.


“Le dernier tango à Paris”, the rape scene : Maria Schneider and Marlon Brando

“Marlon said to me: ‘Maria, don’t worry, it’s just a movie,’ but during the scene, even though what Marlon was doing wasn’t real, I was crying real tears,” she said. “I felt humiliated and to be honest, I felt a little raped, both by Marlon and by Bertolucci. "

Al fin de la batalla, 

y muerto el combatiente, vino hacia él un hombre 

y le dijo: «¡No mueras, te amo tanto!» 

Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo. 
Se le acercaron dos y repitiéronle:

«¡No nos dejes! ¡Valor! ¡Vuelve a la vida!» 

Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo. 
Acudieron a él veinte, cien, mil, quinientos mil, 

clamando «¡Tanto amor y no poder nada contra la muerte!» 

Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo. 
Le rodearon millones de individuos, 

con un ruego común: «¡Quédate hermano!» 

Pero el cadáver ¡ay! siguió muriendo. 
Entonces todos los hombres de la tierra 

le rodearon; les vio el cadáver triste, emocionado; 

incorporóse lentamente, 

abrazó al primer hombre; echóse a andar…
