Storyline

Bamberg 1630. The era of witch-hunting. The surgeon professor Cornelius (Mark Waschke) returns from Vienna, where he is a renowned physician, to his homeland. He is soon forced to face the show trial of witches and appraise, as medical expert, the methods of Commissioner Mr. Berger (devilish Axel Milberg). Cornelius feels his blood churning inside when he is ordered to stay in the city. Snow in June, crop failures, the Catholic Church is worried about those obvious signs of the Devil's presence in the Reformation and its growing power. Rumors start wafting through the city of important people tempted by the Evil. Eventually the first alleged witches come in detention. Who wants to get rid of someone or hurt him, simply accuses him of being a magician or witch. One day the pyre threatens his childhood sweetheart Johanna (Silke Bender). Cornelius plots with bold city councils against the arbitrariness of the church and the fanaticism of Bamberg's authorities. He tries by all means to ... Written by Bob Buckingham

The witch hunt or the period where (mostly) women where hunted and killed off because they were considered to be witches, is a very dark part of human history. The movie was made for TV so you have to put that in consideration. Still the German acting talent they got for this, is pretty decent.

But what really gets you, is the story itself. The injustice, the craziness and the stupidity by many involved. It's tough to watch, but it's very well made. You will know where this is heading more or less, even if you're not aware of history (some things are obviously heightened for show/effect/movie logic). Give it a chance if you're interested in what it has to say
