Preis der Unschuld
Maria (Marie Katrin Ritt) dreams of a life that will take her away from the narrowness of her rural living conditions. Model - that would be the goal of her dreams. Star photographer John Steinmetz (Gabriel Barylli) becomes aware of Maria; he sat on the jury of a beauty contest from which she emerged as the radiant winner. Steinmetz has long been living above the limit - in the hands of a ruthless slave trader (Mathieu Carrière), who sees in Maria's innocence an asset that can be sold to solvent clients. Maria still has no idea of the dangerous abyss she is heading towards. Her carefree, youthful optimism reawakens Steinmetz's faith in himself. For everything in the world, he must free Maria from the clutches that are tightening around them both - even at the cost of his own life.
Sensitive, exciting and atmospherically tight thriller.
