... and nobody was ashamed is a German film melodrama from 1960 with Gustav Fröhlich in one of the leading roles.
A world collapses for the still very young adult Horst Lebrecht when one day he discovers his parents' secret. Up until then he had believed that his father, the government councilor Dr. Lebrecht, and his mother lead an exemplary marriage. But by chance he finds out that both parents are betraying each other. His father, the high-ranking official, has entered into an affair with his secretary, and mother Magda Lebrecht betrays her husband with the much younger bus driver Bob Sommer. Horst does not want to stand by and watch his parents' marriage break up and tries to intervene. But it gets worse: His own sister Monika falls for the charm of a former aviator. Now Horst begins to go nuts. The first act of his deep despair hit the vehicle of the driver Bob: Horst tampered with the brakes of his car. This leads to a serious accident with fatal consequences.
... and nobody was ashamed. It was filmed in the spring of 1960 and premiered on June 9, 1960 in Heilbronn.
“Of course, it's not as shameless as the title suggests. A young sibling pair of his parents is ashamed, who have grown apart and cheat on each other. The young people get caught up in the general web of lies and intrigues, and finally the son (Claus Wilcke) has to try to save what can be saved. It starts off rather slowly and often suffers from a lot of papery dialogues, but there are also some scenes in which things are quite dramatic. A film that does not offer the ultimate in perfection, but is capable of making you think. "
In the lexicon of international films it says: "Emotionally externalized, sometimes sensational colportage in the style of a magazine."
