Storyline

Before going on leave an experienced magistrate assigns to his assistant a case that has been all but concluded. Everything has been proved. The facts are clear: a brutal murder has been committed. The suspect is a young, beautiful girl, who does not deny or remorse the murder. The only thing that remains to be done is to refer the case to the public prosecutor's office. The case is rather strange though. The murdered man had been a criminal blackmailer; the murderess is a timid girl of 17. The young magistrate tries to discover certain vital truth concealed beneath the obvious facts. The girl has pleaded guilty and the bulk of evidence is against her. The only question that has not been answered concerns the motive of the crime. The detective carefully questions the girl to find her real motives. From her story he learns that the girl is real victim. She arrived from the country and due to her naivety ended up in the apartment of a sexual maniac. Locked there for days and subject to ...

The truth is not as simple as the facts must appear.
4 October 2004 | by majorSee all my reviews

This is a psychological crime film. The girl has pleaded guilty and the bulk of evidence is against her. The only question that has not been answered concerns the motive of the crime. The truth is not as simple as the facts must appear. It is somewhat like the forest in which the investigating magistrate jogs every morning. Man is like a forest; you should take a look from the inside to see what he is really like. Otherwise one runs the risk of mot seeing the wood from the trees. The inner worlds of the magistrate and the girl, along with their varied outlooks on life, clash in the course of an aggressive and lyrical dialogue of things said and implied. And out of this clash not only is a new logic born, but also a tender feeling between two complex personalities living in a complex world.
