Stille Wasser

Still Waters

Thriller | 1996

After twenty years as a failed musician, the crooner Harry Kuntz finally has a hit – it is the new version of one of Franz Lehár’s songs “You Are My Heart’s Delight” which takes him to the top of the charts. While Harry basks in his unexpected fame, his brother and manager, Tommy, sees his own dream of making a fortune within his grasp. When their car breaks down one stormy night, the two brothers take refuge in a remote house, where Harry’s lust for sexual adventure embroils them in a nightmare from which there is no escape.
A story that starts off as a social commentary with humorous undertones suddenly tumbles like a terrifying rollercoaster ride towards the abysses of the human soul.
