I can't say word one about the film, but if you like jazz the soundtrack is excellent.
I haven't seen 'Seelische Grausamkeit' (which I guess translates to 'Mental Cruelty'), and it doesn't look like I'm alone in that, but the jazz soundtrack is excellent. If you like melodic, European, jazz with a good balance of composition and improvisation, then check this one out.
Swiss pianist George Gruntz leads a band which is most notable, to me, for expatriate American drummer Kenny Clarke, who takes some inspired solos. In full the band is: George Gruntz (piano); Barney Wilen (saxophone); Kenny Clarke (drums); Marcel Peeters, Raymond Court, K.T. Geier.
The comparison isn't exact, this is a smaller combo and there's more improv, but the disc reminds me somewhat of Henry Mancini's music for the Peter Gunn television show.
