Johannes (Franz Rogowski), a Kaspar Hauser-like man with the mind of a child, lives in seclusion in an alpine hut with his eagle and his devout mother (Susanne Jensen). Everyday life within this reclusive world is determined by prayers and rituals. But between the worship of nature and the creator, modern foreign bodies and disturbing noises suddenly intrude: the tourist development of their paradise threatens to poison it and awaken the devil.
"LUZIFER evokes a palpable unease that shakes the nervous system. This thriller is sophisticated, dealing with the sinister and possessive grip of religious fanaticism, the dangers of capitalist greed, the reverberations of Oedipal lust, family trauma and abuse, among other things. Brunner seems to want to leave us with more questions than answers-or at least force us to look for the devil in everything." NEW YORK TIMES, ISABELIA HERRERA
