About the film: Robert Sigl - Lazarus

The Belgian Front during the First World War. German village teacher Kurt Meyers goes on a quest to find out who was really responsible for the deaths of his two sons. When he discovers that a sadistic major by the name of Tiede is the guilty party and plays a violent game with his own soldiers by deliberately sending them into the enemy’s hail of exploding grenades, he takes his revenge.
He gets Tiede drunk and drags him out into No Man’s Land in the middle of the night. Tiede survives, but Meyer’s face is horribly disfigured by shrapnel. He escapes to a travelling circus where he becomes a member of the freak show but Tiede is already on his trail.
(Screenplay was funded by FFA/Filmförderungsanstalt and is available in German)

SUMMARY : March 1901, in a German port village, Laurin, aged twelve, hears the cry for help, at nightfall, of a little boy whom she sees, from her window, being kidnapped by an adult. During the same night, Flora, Laurin's mother, sees on a bridge the inert body of the little boy and the face of his assassin; we find her dead in the morning, her body lying at the bottom of the bridge. With the father of Laurin, a sailor, being often absent, the little girl, plagued by strange visions, is now entrusted to her grandmother. She soon befriends a classmate, Stefan, who in turn disappears. A killer of children prowls around, and Laurin's curiosity puts her in great danger ...

ABOUT THE FILM :For his first feature film, Robert Sigl produced a true masterpiece, a fantastic tale whose atmosphere evokes the stories of Perrault or the Grimm brothers. Benefiting from a sublime photograph, Laurin summons through his images certain great masters of painting, from John Constable to Caspar Friedrich, via Brueghel. Without resorting to special effects, the director favors the atmosphere and the mystery, with this nature seeming to conceal dangers and secrets, and this village under the influence of traditions and religion. Thirty years after its release, Laurin remains a unique, timeless and wonderful work.
