Die totale Therapie (Total Therapy)

Edition 1997
125' - 1996 - Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: German
Director: Christian Frosch Composer: Michael Palm, Paul Browse With: Ursula Ofner, Blixa Bargeld, Sophie Rois, Walfriede Schmitt
Nine people take part in a two week "know-yourself-course" on a remote country estate. The motives of the participants are as diverse as their characters. The charismatic Roman Romero and his assistants confront their clients with their alleged or real problems. Cut off from the outside world, the participants become more and more consumed by the therapy. After a week, Doctor Romero is found murdered. Panic breaks out and psychotherapy changes into psychoterror. Grotesque accusations fly back and forth, accidents and misunderstandings ensue and bring things to boiling point. Chance, fortune, misfortune and accelerating hysteria make sure the participants are no longer able to act. A catastrophe is unavoidable.
