The second film in the trilogy of celebrated collaborations between director István Szabó and actor Klaus Maria Brandauer continues the examination of ambition, political intrigue, betrayal and destruction. Set during the fading glory of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the film tells of the rise and fall of Alfred Redl (Brandauer), an ambitious young officer who proceeds up the ladder to become head of the Secret Police only to become ensnared in political deception. Based on a real life figure and the subject of John Osborne's "A Patriot For Me", Colonel Redl boasts a distinguished performance by Brandauer who imbues his character with the sense of a man being overwhelmed by history. Subtly directed by István Szabó, it was awarded the Cannes Jury Prize in 1985 and nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 1986 Academy Awards.

In the early part of the 20th Century, Alfred Redl (Klaus Maria Brandauer) ruthlessly rises from his peasant background to become a high-ranking member of the Imperial Austrian Military. But when Redl is sent to spy on the Russian Empire, his espionage is compromised by his secret double life as a homosexual. As the world perches on the brink of war, Redl finds himself trapped in a web of deception where honor, grandeur and greed can only be betrayed by one final shocking act of fate.

This is another great, but completely underrated album by obscure UK rock band (from Liverpool) which wasn't issued in their homeland (in contrast to some of their singles). The same fate met the other British groups from early 70's like Light Of Darkness, Diabolus, lronbridge or Grail. This LP was recorded in London and released in 1971 in USA (by Cadet Concept) and in Italy (by Music Records). The highlight is very moving anti-war anthem ‘Six Days War‘ and the beautiful progressive ballad Lord High Human Being. This fascinating, quasi-progressive and very melodic album contained an eclectic mix of styles, ranging from atmospheric psychedelia, through guitar based soft-progressive to folky ballads - not far away from late 60's The Beatles combined with early 70's The Strawbs and The Moody Blues.

Based on a true story, Istvan Szabo's Hanussen centers on an Austrian soldier (Klaus Maria Brandauer) who becomes clairvoyant after he is shot in the head during World War I. He is able to read minds and predict the future. Before long, he has foreseen Hitler and the Nazis' rise to power, and he soon finds himself in danger. Hanussen is the third of Szabo and Brandauer's collaborations, following Mephisto and Colonel Redl.

Based on Klaus Mann's novel, Mephisto details the rise of a Faustian character who figuratively sells his soul in exchange for greatness. Hendrik Hofgen (Klaus Maria Brandauer, offering an electric performance) is the star of a state-funded theater department who tires of his job. Like his friends, he pays lip service to socialist ideals fashionable for artists of his time – that is, until the Nazis rise to power. He then sees an opportunity to achieve his objective of fame: he will perform propaganda plays and thereby use the Nazis as a vehicle to spread his name across the country – only too late does he realize his mistake. This well-adapted version of the book featured the first teaming of Brandauer with director Istvan Szabo; they would later reunite to make Colonel Redl and Hanussen. Brandauer first gained attention in the U.S. after the film's release and would be cast as the villain in Never Say Never Again as a result.
