She wonders about becoming isolated; all those topics pardoning terrorists, the RAF…the German Autumn are sick.

She teaches English, German and the Arts. It was hard for me not to disdain her, but maybe that’s intentional, too.

But having seen it and knowing more about the violence it implied, I was somehow prejudiced against Jorg, the pardoned terrorist, from the very beginning and I couldn’t help thinking in the end, when he told them all he was terminally ill that this served him right. Reading the characters’ thoughts about each brnhard made me think of how I perceive others and attribute various motives to schlin, without evidence.

Das Wochenende; Bernhard Schlink by Juliane LEY on Prezi

Some bizarre navel-gazing passages towards the end along with a lot of discussion on ‘life lies’. More than twenty years in prison…charged with terrorism! Maar dat blijkt lang geleden.

I think those native to Germany have more of an understanding of what’s going on here. Ferdinand had a short love affair with Dorle. But it also is a family drama and it also talks how people’s opinions change as they age and how life in general turns out differently than planned.
