Thomas Kretschmann made this movie


Every time he popped up, the movie really picked up. I hated him and wanted him dead but he really stole the show.

Without him, the movie was rather dull except for the first 30 and last 15 minutes despite the horrific rape scenes.

HE was great I actually liked the whole movie but yeah. I wish he was till the end. Great performance for a little movie.

I found him disturbingly attractive for the part he played- maybe that was the point but he was very charismatic and held the film together for me.

Men in general however aren't recognized as "beautiful" or rated on their looks, and if they do deeds as bad as HE does, it makes him nothing short of an unforgiveable monster who becomes undeniably so ugly on the INSIDE that nothing positive can be said or felt towards him.
