In Baran bo Odar’s mesmerizing German thriller, a young girl’s brutal murder reopens the case of another girl’s killing 23 years ago. Soon the people involved with that previous rape and murder – the investigator, the victim’s mother and an accomplice to the original crime – watch their worlds crumble as they are drawn deeper into a web of guilt, despair and uncertainty.

Good, really not a fan of the ending though.
A very tedious movie. It was alright, but slow and i didn't care for the way it ended.
Really well done and fresh take on the typical detective investigating a serial crime.
Bleak and devastating. Acting is outstanding. If you’re in the mood for something heavy and well done, 5/5.
Twisted and makes you feel you’re right there in it.
