Storyline

It is the 70's, and in the German countryside the epileptic Michaela Klingler joins the pedagogy course at the University against the will of her pious mother, Marianne. However her father Karl Klingler rents her a room in the sorority house and Michaela travels to Tübingen. As the semester progresses, Michaela befriends her former high school friend, Hanna Imhof, who forces her to seek medical help. When Michaela has a crisis, she stops taking her medication and believes she is possessed by demons, and her health gets worse. She decides to seek out a priest, Martin Borchert, who believes in exorcism whereas the progressive parochial priest Gerhard Landauer tries to convince her to go to a psychologist. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I recommend it as not commercial movie
1 December 2006 | by jipsSee all my reviews

...this movie gives something more. Its own atmosphere is unrepeatable. I recommend this movie to all who are bored with too "commercial" products, because this one brings something new: subject for thinking how strong are these powers and how human has to suffer to proof God's existence... I saw Exorcism of Emily Rose, this movie is my the best one, but REQUIEM simply shows, with free hand cuts this abyss with evil and human's weakness against powerful "black" forces - Satan. This pictures gave us a chance to understand who we are live with, not only beautiful world with God, but also with somebody else, creeping and waiting for us and our weaknesses to fall us down like it was...
