Storyline

Psychiatrist Cora is in a professional crisis, two of her patients have succumbed to each other. Stanislaus Nagy appears in her practice, a strange young man possessed by Maria Callas. But Cora has anything but a harmless Callas admirer. The man suddenly claims to be the bodily devil and, hidden inside his poodle, has directed the life of the opera dives. Nagy also gains a strange power over Cora's fate.

One of the greatest movies in years
10 September 2000 | by weimingwang2See all my reviews

Til Schweiger's acting is so excellent that his facial expression alone is often able to bring out the intensity of the plot. How come this wonderful actor is relatively unknown at the other side of the Atlantic? Instead of telling a story a la Hollywood, the director takes advantage of film-making and let music and images speak for themselves. This movie makes me wanna do two things---collect all Callas' recordings and learn German.
