    How can such difficult subjects as under-age sexual activity, brutal beatings and murders be presented in a way that doesn't alienate the audience, yet still capture the horror and circumstances in a believable manner? The solution? Assign Kai Pieck to the task.

    Though Pieck is to be admired for the rigorousness in telling this chilling story (on what looks like a near zero budget), the film itself remains resolutely unlikable.

    Kai S. Pieck's debut feature finds a plaintive, compelling route to the pathology of 1960s German child-killer Jürgen Bartsch.
