Franziska's marriage is stuck in routine, and her affair sucks, too. And so she does what anyone else would in that situation. Don't ask.

The Hyderabad Film Club, in association with Goethe Zenthrum Hyderabad, is presenting a festival of German Films directed by Helmut Kautner, at the Sarathi Studio and the Goethe premises, from 18th to 24th September. As part of the festival, "The Redhead" is being screened today at Goethe-Zenthrum, the German Association.

Based on a novel by Alfred Andersch, Helmut Kautner’s film tells the story of a young woman, Franziska, who can no longer bear her mundane life in Germany, a marriage stuck in routine, and a harmless, meaningless love affair. She goes to Venice and makes new acquaintances, but all these fall into the same old pattern; among them are a former British officer and spy who uses her to get revenge on a Nazi. So Franziska takes flight again.

The Redhead tells the story of an escape from boredom and routine, and at the same time analyses the stagnation of society. Like his contemporary, Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni, Helmut Kautner depicts melancholic landscapes of the soul.

Director Helmut Kaeutner was born in 1908 in Duesseldorf and died in 1980 in Italy. He studied German, Art History, Philosophy, Psychology and Theater Studies. He began his film career as a scriptwriter. His directorial debut was with the film Kitty and the World Conference (Kitty Und Die Weltkonferenz, 1939), but the film was withdrawn by the Nazi government due to its pro-English tendencies.

Later on, he went on to make great films like Kleider Machen Leute (1940), Auf Wiedersehen Franziska! (1941), Anuschka (1942), Grosse Freiheit Nr. 7 (1944), In Jenen Tagen (1947), Des Teufels General (1955), Zu Jung (1958) and Die Feuerzangenbowle (1970), among others.

His film Dis Letzte Bruecke won a German Film Award in 1954, and Der Hauptmann Von Koepenik won two German Film Awards in 1957.
