Two features by the German director: Yesterday Girl (1966, 88 min.), his first feature, was adapted from a section of his book Life Stories that was based on a legal case he encountered as an attorney. The plot concerns Anita G. (played by Kluge's sister Alexandra), a young Jewish refugee from East Germany who's a petty thief and occasionally a prostitute. The Middle of the Road Is a Very Dead End (1974, 90 min.), a collaboration between Kluge and Edgar Reitz, involves four interconnected plotlines. Both films are in German with subtitles.
