Der Teufel von Mailand

TV-Movie | DE, CHE 2012 | 89' | OV

Her ex-husband tried to kill her and is now confined to a psychiatric ward, his rich family pressures her and her best friend sold her out – physiotherapist Sonia flees Zurich for a small valley in the southern part of Switzerland. There she got a job at a wellness hotel shortly to be opened. But mysterious events relating to a local fairytale keep stirring her up. When the desperate city woman tries to look into the matter on her own and pokes her nose into the complex relationships at the hotel and in the nearby village she suddenly is confronted with her own past. This adaptation of Martin Suter’s mystery thriller novel comes as a German-Swiss co-production directed by Markus Welter. Regula Grauwiller shines in the starring role as a traumatized fighter never giving up, who is up against a seemingly unbeatable force of antagonism. Another outstanding job is done by DOP Pascal Rémond, composing darkly elegant images that should be viewed on the big screen.
