Merkel as Viridiana
Let's see, on New Year's Eve a loosely organized group of desert rats drove off the ubermenchen of Cologne with firecrackers so they could molest and rob their frauleins.
Sargent Schultz of the Cologne constabulary saw nothing and reported that it had been a peaceful gathering.
Then of course the women's complaints were reported. Similar events, indicating a widespread plan for the rapine hi jinks it seems, had happened in quite a few places elsewhere.
In the film Viridiana, which the great Luis Bunuel made in Spain in 1961, a pious, idealistic nun inherits a large estate from her rotten uncle. She invites beggars onto the estate who waste little time before wrecking the place and attempting to rape her.
