As serial killer Lothar Schramm lies dying in his own blood, horrific memories of his miserable life of paranoia, self-harm and rejection flash before his eyes. A tragic look into the mind of a Borderline Personality Disorder psychopath.
Florian Koerner von Gustorf,
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
Successful, young, with a loving boyfriend on her side, Esther is a woman who seems satisfied with her life, nevertheless, ever since that profound laceration in her leg, underneath this elaborate facade, Esther conceals another, more compulsive self. Somehow numb to the pain, Esther, little by little, begins to develop an enthralling and equally compelling fascination for the taste of her own flesh, burrowing deeper and deeper into an unknown realm of self-mutilation and dreadful cannibalistic pleasure. Gradually, as the blind primitive impulses literally consume Esther, her ever-growing fits of fetishistic self-consuming rage will inevitably become noticeable to everyone, and above all, to her worried boyfriend. But he is just powerless against Esther's unsatisfied cravings.Written by
This is an extraordinary piece of drama, but as you can read from other peoples comments.. will confuse you if you can't think for yourself. It is an intensely academically positioned film which seems to draw much on the so called 'postmodern objectivity' and the disconnected self. What is most interesting in this film is that it is void of constructed meaning so whilst watching it De van never gives us answers, but goes directly to the establishment of a thinking feeling subject trying to reconnect with herself against the capitalist/consumerist world she lives in. A truly intelligent film which demands further discussion and thought.
