| Distressed country-site community after a young girl dies of suicide
Situated in Northern Germany at the North Sea, a family drama develops , after the son of a minister is falsely accused of having to do with the eventual death of the girl he loved. With great skill and empathy photographed small town drama. Sometimes it feels like Claude Chabrol in his best years. Great acting and very German. Watched it last night on German TV. Was on the verge of going to sleep and zapped for a while when I jumped into the first minutes of this film and was immediately struck by the looks. Minister and his wife play with great empathy, but overall the atmosphere in this movie is untouched. Although it will be hard to ever see this film again anywhere in the world as it is a TV movie, if you spot it have a go and be aware you're 90 minutes are over in a whiff.
