Scientology - a history of abuse and control
4 December 2010 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Frank Reiners' life isn't going too well. He is torn between taking care of his daughter while his wife Gine is working and his architecture studies. On top of that, Gine's parents have high expectations of their daughter's life and in their eyes, Frank is a bit of a loser.

But when Frank discovers Scientology everything changes.

In Bis nichts mehr bleibt we follow the story from two different points in time. One is a court scenario where Frank is fighting for custody of his daughter; the other tells the story from the beginning.

Even though this film is based on a specific case, the scenario in itself isn't specific at all. Thousands of people have gone through this personal bankruptcy and disconnection from their loved ones. In Germany the fight has been long between government and the "church" and it wasn't a surprise that the org opposed the release of this film, claiming it's intolerant.

I strongly recommend this emotional journey through what used to be known as a cult. Watch this film and ask yourselves - can we allow this to happen over and over again?
