A Little Faith Can Be a Dangerous ThingRarities (past events)Repertory Series Archive


Double Feature with FRAILTY (5:00, 9:00)

2006 • dir Hans-Christian Schmid w/Sandra Hüller, Burghart Klaussner, Imogen Kogge • 93 min • 35mm

Based on a tragic true story, REQUIEM features a transfixing performance from Sandra Hüller as a devout young woman with epilepsy. Despite outside influences, she holds fast to the belief that she is possessed by demons and seeks an exorcism rather than further medical assistance.

“Balancing Ms. Hüller’s astonishingly physical performance with an intimate, naturalistic style, REQUIEM is a moving study of a tortured young woman more at peace with medieval ritual than with modern medicine. Throughout, Mr. Schmid remains agnostic, suggesting that Michaela’s problems, whatever their origin, prove only that a mind in torment is a terrible thing.”
– Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
