Claudia Michelsen as Commissioner Brasch: from psycho to psycho

The scenario:

From psycho to psycho.

Doreen Brasch (Claudia Michelsen) has been suffering from flashbacks ever since she was tormented by a sadistic couple in their basement.

Now, of all times, she is to investigate the case of a young man (Eloi Christ) who, apparently out of the blue, killed a fellow passenger in a train compartment with an emergency hammer.

The matter seems clear, the public prosecutor wants to close the case.

But the damaged detective recognizes in her counterpart the damaged soul that was apparently driven into action by events in early childhood.

The highlight:

Hitchcock in mind, Freud in view: Much of this “police call” is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s film “Spellbound”, in which Ingrid Bergman fought for Gregory Peck, who was suffering from amnesia and was a murder suspect.

In the famous film model, a fictional, Freudian-oriented science book entitled "In the Labyrinth of the Guilt Complex" took center stage.

The title also suits this convoluted trauma thriller well.

The picture:

The Scream.

While the manslayer is being hypnotized to remember what happened, he gapes in his endless pain like the character in Edvard Munch's famous painting.

When remembering becomes torture.

The dialogue:

After Brasch has taken the gun from the suicidal young man in a careless moment, she is called to the boss.

Boss: "I don't know if you can do it.

You're bruised, Brasch.

That was just a big shit.

That will have consequences, you must be aware of that.

I've been repeating myself for months, but you know: I think highly of our therapist, Doctor Bräunlich.«

Brasch: "I don't go to anyone whose name is Bräunlich."

The music:

At the beginning the beats pump like in Underworld, later metallic noise and infernal whistling push into the soundtrack.

Oli Biehler composed a noise score for the psycho trip.

The review:

7 out of 10 points.

Pity a blackjack?

Despite small mistakes: This robust amnesia thriller shakes up investigators and the audience before the big crime summer break.
