A desolate island in the Baltic Sea is governed by the vampire-like baron Aunt Devil. Where once peace and joy shaped the lives of the islanders, now hopelessness and discord rule. When a couple’s true love threatens the island’s state of sadness, the baron cracks up… and a torrent of hatred ensues.
Amid a tornado of violent passions and fantasies, Tilda Swinton is an ethereal vision of innocence and ferocity in Christoph Schlingensief’s apocalyptic parable. Creeping through a phantasmagorical landscape, Nosferatu-style, Udo Kier triumphs at what he does best: playing the Devil with style.
