Ah well, sometimes Twitch beats us to our finds, and sometimes we beat them to theirs, but it's all good. We love those guys, and we all love film which is why we've been clocking this beaut since December. Stunningly shot and based on a true story from the 1930's, this looks like a real winner and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

Based on a true story, this psychological thriller is set in Germany during the recession in the 1930s. Young, ambitious lawyer Justus Wehner gets his first big case – the defence of brutal serial killer Peter Kurten. Wehner is certain that Kurten suffers from a severe mental disorder and to prove it delves deep into the killer’s past, motivation and psyche. Then, Kurten’s wife Marie arrives, and together with Kurten, starts to manipulate Wehner into assisting them with one last crime. Now, Wehner has to fight not only to win the complicated case but also to save his soul.
