Slow, but interesting and somewhat bizarre

An interesting film about a cannibal and his victim. The girl in the story really had little relevance, and added nothing to the plot. Don't think the cine film style of the boys' childhoods added to the film in terms of atmosphere, and in general, I found the drab colour of the film irritating. Well acted, but child actors were rather stilted. A look at unusual human behaviour, and certainly not for the squeamish.
grimm is right!!

This movie wasnt really up to much. Kerri Russels charecter, as the american in germany researching the cannibal and his victim for her thesis, was completely unnecessary. it should have just been a movie about the Cannibal and his victim and then i might have rated it better...

Disturbing cause it's based on a true story, thought it was well told from both perspectives. If your a horror fan its well worth a watch, like all great horrors its what you don't see that freaks you out...
Dull and somewhat pointless...

..considering there is a much better (although extremely graphic) version of the same story under the title "Cannibal" (directed by Marian Doran). Check this one out instead, if you can stomach it.

very disturbing movie but still had to watch to the end and must say knowing it was a true account made it all the more disturbing
