Trivia

"Inspired" by the real life story of the "Cannibal of Rotenburg", Armin Meiwes, who mutilated, killed, and finally ate a man who had previously agreed to Meiwes doing just that with him. Both men met on the Internet where media subsequently discovered vast communities of people fantasizing about eating and being eaten by others sharing their "quirk". See more »

Quotes

Katie Armstrong: Oliver Hartwin wanted to eat someone. Simon Grombeck wanted to be eaten. They were a perfect match.

Disgusting result of a destroyed society
1 March 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

After the promising first minutes of the movie which look like they where trying to build a serious profile behind the killings, the movie drifts to a simple and disgusting presentation of violence.

A movie made for perverts...

The acting is decent, the storyline is not. The entire plot focused on the student trying to understand the psyche of the killer is only based loosely on the facts, all leading to build up more shots with violence. Even so it may have happened that way - why would you make a movie that features the most disgusting things a human has done? Looked to me like the director and writer failed to find a clear statement for the film and therefore went down the easy way by producing a flick that thrives on pain and the scandal behind it to get recognition at the box office.
