Synopsis

When 17-year-old Effi Briest (Hanna Schygulla) marries the elderly Baron von Instetten (Wolfgang Schenck), she moves to a small, isolated Baltic town and a house that she fears is haunted. Because of her husband's constant traveling, Effi finds companionship with Major Crampas (Ulli Lommel), a charismatic womanizer. Several years later, details about the relationship between Effi and Crampas come to light, with disastrous consequences for her marriage.
