Storyline

Lynn is the most thorough chambermaid at the hotel where she works. Crippled by her own shyness, she rummages through the guests' belongings and even hides under their beds, vicariously experiencing their discreet interludes. When she finds herself present during a session with the call girl Chiara, Lynn can't help but let her curiosity get the better of her. Bold and unrestrained, Chiara soon draws Lynn out of her shell, opening her up to a new intimacy Lynn had previously only experienced as an intrepid voyeur.

Intriguing German film of BDSM and the lure of voyeurism
18 October 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

Lynn has 'issues' she is being treated for her condition and has a job as a maid at a nice hotel. She is a very hard worker and is obsessive compulsive. Cleaning is her ideal job and she excels at it. She hos has desires, which leads her to doing things that she may not have done with enough time to think.

She also is a voyeur; in that she hides in the guests' rooms to observe what they get up to, and I do not mean which channels they want to watch on the television either. Then one day she experiences an encounter between a dominatrix and her client and she is inexorably drawn to the exotic and alluring creature – and so begins her journey.

Now this is a film that will appeal to as many as it repels in that it is about sexual unorthodoxy but is not a sex film per se. It is a very good and even intimate exploration of lust and desire and the fetishistic side of human nature. It is well made and acted and has those moments where very little appears to be happening but that helps juxtapose the mundanity of the ordinary as it segues into the extraordinary in other peoples ordinariness. In German with good sub titles this is for you if you enjoy films that area bit left field and as such recommended.
