Hepzibah aka: The Village

An ordinary town in the east called Selmen has become the bizarre scene of a most terrifying trend – seemingly happy girls are killing themselves on their 18th birthday. For Kirsten that fact does not deter her from traveling from her hometown to the accursed Selmen trying to unearth the facts which had led to her adoption.

Her yearning for the truth buried in her past must be fulfilled quickly as her 18th birthday is rapidly approaching…

Tatort: Rache-Engel (Scene of the Crime: Avenging Angel)

Vera Schneider, well-known chairperson of a charitable foundation, formerly a celebrated pianist, is honoured for her commitment to the resocialisation of young prisoners. A few hours later the charity lady is found dead - after falling from her balcony. The forensic evidence left by the perpetrator in the apartment points to robbery with murder. The team around Max Palu has to deal with five suspects: Heinz Schneider, boss of Schneider Machine-Tools, a cold-blooded character who wanted to get rid of his wife because she stood in the way of his newly-arranged private life. Martin, the lost son, who has recently reappeared on the scene. Marion, their adopted daughter, seriously traumatised since a car accident. Eva-Maria Klein, Vera Schneider's office manager in the foundation, who has left her traces in many suspicious places. And the only slightly resocialised petty criminal Moshi, one of Vera's protégés and an old friend of Martin's. 
Max Palu finds himself under pressure - for his new Superintendent Klausmann is demanding a swift solution. Particularly since the latter wants no suspicion cast on Heinz Schneider as 1,000 jobs depend on his investments. This becomes increasingly difficult since someone, who knows more than the investigators, keeps leaking details to the media.

Tatort: Zielscheibe (Scene of the Crime: Target)

Mit dieser Geschichte des modernen Reality-TV greift Palu-Film Nummer 13 wieder ein brisantes Thema auf. So verblüffend die Geschichte dem Zuschauer teilweise auch erscheinen mag, die Parallelen zu aktuellen Sendeformen sind sehr deutlich. Mit schneller Schnittfolge, dramaturgisch durchdachten Sequenzen und der Darstellung einiger skrupelloser Medienprofis kommt diese unglaubliche Tatort-Story der heutigen Fernsehrealität bedrückend nahe. Regisseur Robert Sigl hat eine bedrohliche Mischung aus „Aktenzeichen XY - ungelöst“ und „Big Brother“ geschaffen, die nicht mehr so weit von unserer Fernsehwirklichkeit entfernt ist, wie wir uns das vielleicht wünschen. "Solche Drehbücher sind selten" kommentierte der mit dem Bayerischen Filmpreis ausgezeichnete Kino- und TV-Regisseur das Angebot des SR.

Lexx – The Dark Zone: Giga Shadow

The original Lexx saga comes to an epic close as the fractious foursome (if you count churlish robot head 790) returns to the Shadow-ruled Cluster in a last-ditch effort to obtain the proto-blood that keeps the undead Kai animated. To their surprise they find a dead universe: every human has been sacrificed to His Shadow's rebirth as the Giga-Shadow, except a clerical conspiracy has put an end to that... maybe. With the help of a dead body (guest star Malcolm McDowell, who spends much of the film as a disembodied face) reanimated with a splatter of proto-blood, the rebirth is back on schedule and only the dying Kai, the desperate Zev, and a Cluster Lizard pup named Squish stand in its way. Meanwhile Stanley plots an elaborate and rather ingenious revenge on a pair of perverted mercenaries who once made him their unwilling sex toy, but did they get a jump on the bumbling schmuck?
