She was one of his victims, but cannot recognize him because he was hidden by a mask. His brutal assault on her was never resolved. Ben does his best not to attract attention. But Eva's suspicion is aroused. Written by
I saw this film in the Film Festival of Thessaloniki. I like watching German Films, "Lolla Rent" and "Das Leben Der Anderen" were masterpieces. This film is not something great. One young criminal was arrested and took part in a modern project of punishment in a house in the forest. One of his victim works in this facility. That's the main story. You can predict the ending. The movie characters are flat , the directing is not something special, and the ending is disappointing. This film is about forgiveness and punishment. The main story could let in a extremely film, but in this movie, this story goes "wasted". The only interesting for me was this project of punishment, which I found very interesting and good for the society, although sometimes it does not lead to good results.
