Movie Info

A man trying to come to terms with his past crosses paths with someone touched by his misdeeds in this drama from director Connie Walther. Bernd Widmer (Ulrich Noethen) has just been released from prison after spending more than twenty years behind bars; Widmer was a member of a radical leftist group who unintentionally killed a man during a bombing, and after serving his time he walks out into a world where the cause he fought for is either forgotten or considered quaint. Widmer moves into an apartment where his next door neighbor is Valerie Matos (Franziska Petri), a single mother who has recently lost custody of her child after being accused of abuse. Widmer and Matos strike up a friendship over shared misfortune, but they soon discover they are linked by a strange coincidence -- Matos's father was the victim of Widmer's bomb. But is it really just fate that Widmer has ended up so close to Matos? Schattenwelt (aka Long Shadows) was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
