Director: Christoph Hochhäusler
"Beautiful, chilling and tragically ironic." - Hollywood Reporter
Hunted by police after escaping captivity, sex offender and killer Molesch is on the run in the woods on the outskirts of Dreileben, as police inspector Marcus Kreil closes in on him. Finding safety in the forest, Molesch's chance encounters with the people of the town shed new light on the crimes he was convicted of.
A slow-burn thriller, this conclusion to the Dreileben project from filmmaker Christoph Hochhäusler (The City Below, Low Profile) is a riveting inversion of perspective, as the lurking criminal presence in the previous two films becomes a compelling, disturbed protagonist.
"38-year-old Hochhäusler has quickly emerged as one of his nation's most promising younger directors. One Minute of Darkness amply confirms and consolidates that reputation." - Hollywood Reporter
