Introduction

Subtitled ‘a fairy tale about constraints’, this superb piece of storytelling is based on a real-life interview with a convicted murderer.

After an emotionally deprived childhood, Peter (Vitus Zeplichal) is desperately eager to please – a slave to desires that aren’t truly his own.

Peer Raben delivers one of his finest scores and Ernie Mangold is memorably chilling as Peter’s monstrous mother.
