Storyline

In total despair, Anja is about to throw herself from a bridge. At that very moment, Henry drives past in his car. Thinking she's a prostitute, he invites her home with him. She pretends to be what he initially thought. She refuses to explain the reasons for her apparent attempt at suicide. They begin to play strange games, engage in unusual sex, leading her to try fleeing the apartment, but he catches her. Forced by him, she tells him about Lilly who was raped and then killed by someone, leaving Henry with the impression that Lilly and Anja are one, the same person. They play more mind games, make love, and after Anja going back and forth trying to leave, he finally lets her go. She goes, but is back again soon after. And with a vengeance, she causes a series of strange events which will change the course of both of their lives. Written by A Verdade

Pointless sex and violence piece.
29 August 2003 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

What this piece of Sado masochistic twaddle is doing in a National Film festival takes some explaining. Must be a slow year for German cinema. It's competently made and the leads are well built and uninhibited which does work up interest when they get it on briefly but the pointlessly enigmatic complications make attention wander - the Arabian Nights of a maybe whore and a metal sculptor who just happens to have a bondage chair and straight razor.

Played largely in a single setting in square on close-ups this format would take more talent than is wielded here. I didn't like it all that much when Susan Sontag pretended she was a film director with DUET FOR CANNIBALS.
