Strange events happen in a small village in the north of Germany during the years just before World War I, which seem to be ritual punishment. The abused and suppressed children of the villagers seem to be at the heart of this mystery.
I gotta disagree completely with 'mgmax' of Chicago.
I watched it on TV very recently. This was the 2nd time it has been shown on the ABC (In Australia). I recommended it to everyone I know- sounds cheesy I said, but it's worth watching. Why? For Rupert Everett, that's why.
This movie is all about Rupert Everett. Forget all that stuff about the plot- this is Sherlock Holmes for Christ's sake!. Everett is simply great as Holmes.
The film has got some great one-liners, some are quoted on the website.
Sit back and enjoy the best Holmes ever.
This one goes into Holmes' drug taking as well.
We don't see enough of Rupert Everett. I just watched the Comfort of Strangers- now that's got a thin plot.
