" sad glimpses of the stunted boy inside the beast"
Shocking as it may be this movie shows a unique viewpoint of a boy/ young man- the storyline is full with possible answers to the question why Jürgen committed the horrible crimes portrayed in the movie.
I can hardly believe that someone will see this movie and fill find the guilt in the only boy himself the parents and the surroundings of Jürgen played their role too to shape his mentality. " sad glimpses of the stunted boy inside the beast" was written in what review and that seems to me the most important point of the film but I wonder if too many people will be able to see trough " The movie was disturbing indeed, especially since it is based on a true story. Some of the reviews I went trough about this movie were pointing out that the fact that Jürgen doesn't want to grow up is essential part of his "ill mentality " and I strongly disagree with such opinion- what he did those killings are evil , but they can not be associate with such desire of youthful life.
