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.

The darkness of deep recesses of human soul, the entrapment of fundamentalist religion,the repressed sexuality and much, much more. "Antibody", brilliant German crime drama tackles successfully all of these issues, without neglecting the pacing and suspense, the necessary ingredients for this genre. The director Christian Alvart, although only 31 when he made this movie, has a precise artistic credo and an eye of an old master. The rawness, blood and explicit sex combined with the carefully measured silence and powerful, understated acting, makes this masterpiece a standout in usual drivel associated with this popular genre.
