| Stunning German Thriller
This stunning first German film from Swiss director Baran bo Odar is on the taboo English subject of Paedophiles. The film opens with a rape and murder of an 11 year old girl in a beautiful but deadly cornfield, her body thrown in to a lake.Forward 23 years and the same thing happens in the same place.This is not a who is the child molester film you know or think you do from the start. The ending is just jaw dropping. If you liked the Danish thriller The Killing or The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo or the other recent Australian film Snowtown this is the film for you.It is very bleak and in places hard to watch due to the subject but if you can manage that this is a must see. The acting by all the cast of which i knew no one is brilliant.The film looks stunning all of it's 120 mins. There is no let up at all.A must see for those of you with guts of steel.
