The Murder Mystery

... a pornographic-sadistic phantasy of murder in flickering black & white and torn images .... "Pumping Screen". (Dietmar Brehm) A superlatively crafted film which uses the psychology of sight deprivation to keep the viewer in suspense: you are allowed only the merest glimpses of what is really going on. The cumulative effect as a mental picture starts to grow, is at once titillating and disturbing. Director Dietmar Brehm knows exactly how to tempt our darker desires. (8th Edinburgh Fringe Film & Video Festival, Katalog, Edinburgh 1992)
