Set in the "German Autumn" of 1977 the movie tries to confront the supernatural horror of "Suspira" with the earthly horror of the RAF terror. But like the psychoanalyst Dr. Klemperer (Tilda Swindon) who is not able to help his patient Patricia the director fails to give some analytical insight in the nature of horror itself. We get some well composed pictures, a moody light and some good acting but the director missed his target. He has studied the history of the Italian cinema exploiting and dismembering the human body. But while those cheaply produced pictures often gave some insight in the nature of horror, terror and fascist politics this movie is just set in a gloomy Berlin struggling with its Nazi-past, the wall and a leftist terror group. It was not a happy time that message is delivered but unlike many delTorro movies it fails to mirror the horror of reality with the horror of the spiritual world - well unless you take mirror literally.
