Storyline

A small port at the turn of last century, embedded in a romantic river landscape with dense woods and a large castle ruin on a hill. Laurin, a pretty girl aged nine, lives together with her young mother Flora, her father Arne and her somewhat peculiar grandmother, Olga, in a remote, ivy-clad cottage in the middle of the forest. Laurin's father is a sailor and he often has to leave his family back for more than a couple of months. One evening Flora takes her husband for the long way down to the harbour. On her way back through night and storm she dies under mysterious circumstances, crashing through the rotten railing of a long, wooden bridge and drowning in the icy water of the river. Flora's death appears like a horrible accident, yet her little daughter feels that something evil is concealed in the village community. Two years later, Laurin's father has gone off to sea again and the girl stays alone with her grandmother. It is now, that Van Rees, the parson's son, returns from the ... Written by Anonymous

This movie had great impact on me.
24 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie had great impact on me. It is absolutley brilliant shot, in fact the whole movie looks like a dream. The story is a dark fairytale, which is sure to give you the creeps and full of unexpected plottwists. This is probably the best german movie ever made.
