This dark psychological thriller draws us into Maria‘s strange world. Tension mounts as she is buffeted by interactions with her abusive husband, demanding father, and meek paramour. This housewife, who initially appears outwardly unassuming and unremarkable, is shown to possess an inner landscape of a twisted and scarred mind. Techniques of German Expressionist cinema gradually give us insight into her psyche. Secret after secret is gradually revealed, until the chilling and disturbing conclusion.
