Christian Alvart: [mirror shot] Michael (Wotan Wilke Möhring) in his hotel room in the city. He sees Gabriel Engel ('André Hennicke (I)') behind him who isn't really there. Alvart uses his typical shot: Michael is reflected by three mirrors, effectively showing him four times from all angles. Gabriel Engel is only in one of them. See more »
The world is unfair. Even to people like us. Pedro Alonso Lopez committed 300 sex murders. Now, 20 years later, who remembers him? Not a soul. Jack the Ripper is world-famous, and for what? Five bitches. Five! And Charley Manson. The hippie they called "Our Emperor" didn't even commit one murder himself.

That is one question you could be asked by a friend or a shrink...being asked that by a serial killer sitting in a cage behind bars is a different thing. I just watched the movie and I am still in it. It was the highest tension I have experienced for a long time. When I read about the movie and it being compared to Silence of the Lambs I thought that no German director could create the perfect nightmare...but I thought wrong. I especially liked the fact that the officer from a very small village...389 souls aren't that much...has to deal with a killer who has been caught in the big city. The movie contains very interesting characters and is a technical masterpiece. I liked the beginning very much and was happy with the killer. He is evil and very clever! Madames en monsieurs...10 points go to Germany for the Best Thriller of the Year: Antikörper
