A Call Girl Named Rosemarie

 

continued

Frankfurt. Through persistence and perseverance, Rosemarie (Nadja Tiller) works her way into the inner circle of the cartel and quickly establishes herself as a kept woman among their ranks. Her former associates, a pair of hoodlums who make their living as street musicians and petty burglars, function as a Greek chorus to the events of the film, making up songs about Rosemarie's career path and accompanying themselves on squeezebox and banjo. They also milk Rosemarie for as much cash as they can get out of her. The only character in the film who refuses to be corrupted by the temptations of the economic miracle is a young man, a university student and Christian street-corner proselytizer, who takes a personal interest in Rosemarie's soul.

Rosemarie is soon discovered by a scheming French businessman who sets her up in an even nicer apartment, where he employs her in industrial espionage. He provides her with a tape recorder and miniature camera for documenting the business secrets and sexual encounters of her clientele. This information is used both for personal blackmail and for acquiring inside information on the cartel's machinations.
