Feature Film

When Alexander returns home from his over seas studies, he is confronted with the engagement of his twin sister Patrizia to his ex- lover Jan. During a hunting expedition, Alexander shoots a beater dead. An incident with dire consequences! Loosely based on Thomas Mann’s novella of the same name and mirrored in the twin incest of Wagner’s “Valkyrie”, the story itself; timeless but with astonishing contemporary reverberations.
