But he is no longer there and instead Katharina is arrested, humiliated, suspected to be a terrorist herself... Starring Angela Winkler, Mario Adorf, Dieter Laser, and Jürgen Prochnow, The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum is a political drama that serves as a plea for democracy and individual rights, co-directed by Margarethe Von Trotta and acclaimed German filmmaker Volker Schlöndorff (Die Blechtrommel aka The Tin Drum).
