Sennentuntschi: Curse Of The Alps
Directed by Michael Steiner
When a mysterious woman appears in a mountain village, the townsfolk immediately suspect her of being an evil witch. As the villagers turn against her, a cop decides to get to the bottom of who she is. But what he uncovers is a twisted web of desire, madness and murder that could have something to do with the legend of the Sennentuntschi, a woman brought to life by the devil with a taste for vengeance. Could she be that...thing? Or is there an even scarier explanation? Switzerland’s first genre film is a vividly realized labyrinthine thriller which will have you guessing until the final frame. Contains strong language, violence, nudity and gore.
A mysterious woman who may not be human appears in a small Swiss mountain village.
Cast: Roxane Mesquida, Nicholas Ofczarek, Andrea Zogg
Interesting folkloric revenge film. Kept my attention to the end, but the conclusion felt very odd/rushed for a film that had built the plot quite well up to that point.
Entertaining and dark, it has a good blend of plot and gore which most films fail to blend effectively. Definitely worth your time.
Good flick, good chick.
The visual style (mainly the editing) is quite dated, but it's a solid mystery with a good central performance from Roxane Mesquida and pretty top notch atmosphere.
