by Jordache Wee

Original German Title: Rohtenberg
Release Date: March 14, 2007
Directed by: Martin Weisz
Music by: Steven Gutheinz
Starring: Keri Russell, Thomas Kretschmann, Thomas Huber

Katie Armstrong (Keri Russell), an American student in Germany studies on criminal psychology chooses a notorious subject to research for her thesis: the cannibal killer Oliver Hartwin (Thomas Kretschmann) and his victim, Simon Grombeck (Thomas Huber).

An untold tale began to lead the story when she discovered a snuff tape documenting the cannibalistic journal between the two men.

Reviewer’s Note:
Based on a real life account – Armin Meiwes was the real “Hannibal Lecter” chewing and preserving his victim alive in a meat refrigerator. He acquired his victim via an agreement of willingness to have his meat eaten alive. His victim lavishly wanted his genital to be cut and cooked raw and share the meat between both men.

The film distinguished from the gruesome details yet if you have the eyes to see and listen. Go ahead. And this is way beyond BDSM (Bondage SadoMasochism).
