Storyline

Nineteen-year-old Vera Kall cycles home through the night. She arrives at a farm, leaves her bike and sneaks quietly in through the door. She enters the kitchen and doesn't even have time to notice that she's not alone. The sudden blow is heavy and knocks Vera headlong onto the kitchen floor where she is left lying. Henry is a successful copywriter in Antwerp. One day he is approached by Paula, a documentary filmmaker. Ten years earlier, she was Vera's classmate. Now she plans to make a film about Vera and wants Henry to become involved as he was their teacher back then in the city of Münster. Despite his plea of innocence Jakob Kall sits imprisoned for the murder of his daughter. This tragic and brutal story brings Paula and Henry together as they search for the truth behind what really happened, and why Vera's body was never found. Both Henry and Paula carry well-hidden secrets which are slowly and inexorably forced out into the open. But the big question remains; is the man ... Written by D&D

Trivia

Intrigo: Death of an Author (2018), Intrigo: Dear Agnes (2019) and this movie comprise an anthology trilogy. As an anthology, the trilogy is tied together by story themes - hate, revenge and nemesis - rather than by characters. The only characters common to all three movies are the not seen opening narrator, portrayed by Karen Archer, who speaks about those themes, and Doris, portrayed by Tor Clark, a server at the titular "Intrigo", a café in the fictional town of Maardam where many of the characters meet. Michael Byrne portrays Keller in both "Author" and "Samaria", Ed Cooper Clarke portrays Thomas Neuman(n)-Hansen in both "Author" and "Agnes", and Cal MacAninch portrays Erich Neuman(n)-Hansen in both "Agnes" and "Samaria", and one can only assume, although it is not implicitly stated, that in all three cases the actor is indeed playing the same character in both movies. In addition, the assumed name of the translator in "Author" and the ad copywriter in "Samaria" are both Henry Martens. See more »

Boring
11 June 2020 | by sudipmaitraSee all my reviews

The movie just dragged on and on and on. There was nothing in it to hold the audience's attention.
