Storyline

Long wanted serial killer Gabriel Engel gets arrested in a spectacular police strike. Small town cop Michael Martens travels to the big city to interrogate him. He associates a brutal murder case with the killer's method and hopes to close the case by getting a confession from Engel. Instead the clash of the two totally opposite characters shakes Michaels beliefs to the ground, turning him into a dangerous threat to the people around him. Written by Napoleon Wilson

Trivia

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabriel Engel: 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.

26 January 2008 | by (Sarasota, FL) – See all my reviews

Fine thriller that ostensibly tells the story of the capture and interrogation of a serial killer of young boys. However, the film is really about so much more than that. It tackles issues like how life in a small village can be disrupted for years by a single murder, and how the inhabitants cope in the aftermath. It also covers the strained relationship between townspeople and the local constabulary, as well as how a small town officer fares when dealing with big city police investigators, some of whom do not appreciate his assistance.

On a larger scale, it ponders the place of religion in modern society, especially as it pertains to the nature of good and evil. Can evil infect and ultimately corrupt the good and innocent? Does Catholicism help or hurt the fervent believer? Is there room for religious belief in modern times? The movie presents all this in a Silence of the Lambs-type package that looks great, is beautifully acted, sometimes shocking and well paced for its over 2 hour run time. In German with English subtitles.
