Three German Tales of Love, Sex and Death in Berlin

Face Your Worst Fears

Acclaimed writers and directors Jörg Buttgereit, Michal Kosakowski and Andreas Marschall are back behind the camera with a supreme feature film, controversial, mystical and disturbing. With a ‘fil rouge’ of old images of Berlin scariest architecture, the film is built around three tales. The first episode, tells the story of a young girl who lives alone with her guinea pig in a dirty apartment in Berlin … is she alone? In the bedroom lies a man, bound and gagged … The second episode tells about a powerful ‘if-only’ scenario in which a young deaf-mute couple is attacked by a group of hooligans. However, they are in possession of a mysterious talisman that could help them … In the last episode, a man stumbles upon a secret sex club that promises the ultimate sexual experience by using a drug made from the roots of the legendary Mandragora plant. The ecstatic experiences have horrific side effects …
