  Three years ago, Andrea Maria leg was debut novel Murder Farm is a sensational success, received the German Crime Prize, and stood for weeks on the bestseller list. This was followed by a Monica Bleibtreu read audiobook version and a play. Now, the Swiss director Bettina Oberli (North Wind, The Late Bloomers) adapted the novel for the big screen and directed an impressive, densely atmospheric drama. Murder Farm is the synonym for a tragedy. Reconstruction is a carnage in the fictional town in Bavaria, situated in a farm in the mid 50s. There the whole family Danner with the pickaxe was murdered in cold blood: the old farmer Danner, his careworn wife, daughter Barbara, her two small children and the maid. No one in the village of fact, noticed something surprising, but it does not. For the old Danner (Vitus Zeplichal) was an unpredictable tyrant, not only his own family cruelly oppressed, but also to the villagers was spiteful and malicious. No one liked him in the village. The offense is two years ago, when the 26 year old Kathrin (Julia Jentsch) in the village shows up, which also has lived in her recently deceased mother. The perpetrator is still not found and Kathleen’s presence brings the tragedy once again. The reclusive villagers Kathrin tell their version of history. Like a mosaic is made up of the individual statements of fact, which is reconstructed in flashback and back to the scene. gives a chronological processing it, neither the novel nor the film and so is the nested narrative back on the canvas. The story refers to a real and unsolved murders six times in 1922 on an isolated farmstead in Upper Bavaria Hinterkaifeck, can one’s blood run cold. The interesting thing about the film but also the conditions in the village, the milieu, the coldness, indifference and bigotry are the villagers. Mutual mistrust and accusations provide a threatening mood. Because the killer is one of them, from among its own. Drawn is a bleak picture of society after the war. States and mysterious murders in a village, stubborn villagers – that may seem familiar to who has the white band of Michael Hanecke considered. In both films it is not primarily concerned with solving the murder or murders. Both films have a similar threatening and disturbing-alone in the staging of the oppressive, patriarchal, strict religious village atmosphere. But while Haneckes drama, before the First World War is happening, and therefore before the horrors of the Nazi terror in this Tannöd are long gone. Shortly after the Second World War, people had hope that evil is finally over. The film shows how fast it can go up to the evil germinates and again how vulnerable people are in favor. With precise, almost documentary look rayed Bettina Oberli life in the village and the cruel deed that is behind it. With her film, she is both an exciting thriller, but also a terrific psychological drama succeeded. (Katrin Knauth)
