| Nowhere nearly as brutal and harrowing as Marian Dora's "Cannibal".
"Rohtenburg" by Martin Weisz is based on a true crime case of German cannibal Armin Meiwes,who butchered and cannibalized computer programmer Bernd-Jurgen Brandes after putting on necrobabes.com an advertisement "I'm looking for a normally built young man between 18 and 25 years for a real slaughter and consumption".It was ultimately banned in Germany due to a lawsuit in which Meiwes successfully argued that the film slandered his deeds and made him look bad.As a person who is really interested in the darkest human deeds I had to watch it.The performances by Thomas Huber as Simon and particularly Thomas Kretschmann as Oliver are very strong,but the film lacks gore and horrifying images of "Cannibal".I also think that Keri Russel's character is completely bland and unnecessary.The film would be better without it.Overall,this film left me a little bit disappointed.Check out Marian Dora's "Cannibal" or horrifying documentary "The Man Who Ate His Lover" for much better understanding of this fascinating case.
