Storyline

Acclaimed writers and directors Jörg Buttgereit, Andreas Marschall, Michal Kosakowski are back behind the camera with a supreme feature film, controversial, mystical and disturbing. With a "fil rouge" of old images of Berlin scariest architecture, the film is built around three tales. The first episode, tells the story of a young girl who lives alone with her guinea pig in a dirty apartment in Berlin... is she alone? In the bedroom lies a man, bound and gagged... The second episode tells about a powerful "if-only" scenario in which a young deaf-mute couple is attacked by a group of hooligans. However, they are in possession of a mysterious talisman that could help them... In the last episode, a man stumbles upon a secret sex club that promises the ultimate sexual experience by using a drug made from the roots of the legendary Mandragora plant. The ecstatic experiences have horrific side effects... Written by Matteo Lovadina, Michal Kosakowski, Jörg Buttgereit, Andreas Marschall

One of the best modern Horror Anthologies
25 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I went to see German Angst after hearing that Jörg Buttgereit has directed the first part of three movies. I hadn't heard about the other directors: Michal Kosakowski and Andreas Marschall.

The first movie draws a parallel between a pet guinea pig and people. Very gritty and painful movie really with many levels of meaning. Buttgereit's direction is as strong as ever here.

The second movie is topical with all the racism going on in East-Europe and Ukraine where minorities are increasingly blamed of the problems instead of the "owners" that are causing the problems. The violence looks very painful and realistic without having to use excess gore and the conclusion is strong.

The last movie was a true surprise. A well told story of a man looking for some extra spice from outside his current relationship. Well, he finds it. Some scenes remind me of Andrzej Żuławski's Possession, which is the ultimate relationship movie. The last movie features one of the most outrageous sex scene I have ever seen.

No laughs here. German Angst is something that needs to be digested for a while. Something that is very rare these days where the actual content is often missing. Empty shells masked with glitter and hype.
