Jack Unterweger was and remains an enigma, elevated to celebrity status and acclaimed for his underworld-plunging poetry and fiction before being charged with the murders of 11 prostitutes in Austria and abroad.
A girl dies on a winter night, brutally mauled, frost bitten. Jack is in prison for this murder. He channels his dark character into poems that he writes. After his release from custody after 15 years he becomes a star in Viennas high society as a poet and a lover. But can a person change fundamentally? Can he defeat, or at least silence the devil inside of him? Or does a murderer remain a murderer forever?Written by

Which is true in many sense as you can tell once you watch the movie. It also applies to the viewer. Because there are things that are left in the dark (no pun intended) and it is being done on purpose. Don't know if that is your cup of tea, but if it is, also be aware that this has a lot of nudity in it.
It's a strange mix about a person that not many things seem to be certain, so it was easy to be as liberal and open as possible in this. Whether the viewer will appreciate this or not, is a different story. A dark and maybe not as satisfying movie as I was expecting in some respects, but still more than decent enough to give it a try/watch
