The young woman Laura Fischer has a session with a psychologist. The session begins with Laura telling that after two years of successive rapes of female students riding bicycles in the woods nearby the campus of the college where she studied, the student Emma Machielsen forms a committee with Josien Schippers, Marieke Kopermode, Bonnie Javoer and her to discuss a possible solution with the dean. However, the dean claims that he has no budget to improve the security and could only afford to provide three buses for the students. The girls decide to bike through the woods together in convoy, but when Marieke is late, they leave her alone in the campus. She decides to cross the woods alone, and the serial rapist rapes her. Her friends decide to investigate the crimes by themselves and they prepare a list of possible rapists, leading the group to a tragic consequence. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Nothing special or spectacular, just a well executed thriller.
9 July 2005 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

"Stille Nacht" is average in many ways. It's one of those typical movies were there is not an awful lot wrong with but it also ain't exactly anything special to watch. A typical 6 out of 10 movie. Watchable but not that highly recommendable.

A thing that could have helped to make this movie a better one is the script. It's obvious that they wanted to create a realistic story and atmosphere, which makes it even more silly that yet the have put in some typical 'Hollywood' thriller moments in the movie, including a typical Hollywood like ending. All of the male characters in the movie are also portrayed as sexual obsessed creatures. The anti-male message is a bit too much present for my taste.

The acting is good but the good actors can't help concealing some of the weak dialog at times. There are some truly talented young actresses in this movie, of which I'm sure we will hear a lot more about in the future (well, at least in The Netherlands we will.).

The typical thriller like atmosphere is good and the movie is overall well executed. Ineke Houtman is a good and talented director, if you get the chance, see her other movie "Madelief: Krassen in het tafelblad", it's one of the best executed and powerful children dramas I have ever seen. As for this movie, it's a good attempt but the script could have used some more work. Less Hollywood moments next time please, it would have helped to make the movie more believable and realistic.

If you get the chance, see it on TV some time. It's not really worth owning it on DVD.

6/10
