Maggelburg is a small town that's surrounded by the Forest of the Massgraves, a forest that's supposed to be haunted and that's linked to a mass murder from 20 years ago. Nowadays, the forest is mainly roamed by Neo Nazis, junkies and gays looking for some outdoor privacy. All others tay away, and wisely so.

Now Hector Da Silva (Jann Halexander) has gone deep in the wood, and never returned. His sister Ariane (Ariane.) starts to worry about him - even though he stole away her HIV-positive boyfriend (Olivier Magdeleine). Her first attempt to look for him in the forest leads to her almost being raped though, mainly because her attackers take offense to her dark skin. So she joins up with Severia (Maik Darah), a sort-of shaman who has dedicated her life to investigating the secrets of the forest. The two of them make an excursion into the forest, and the deeper they get in, the more apparent it becomes Hector is obviously dead. Eventually, they feel something after them, a man in perfect Ku Klux Klan outfit. Severia doesn't survive the encounter, but Ariane witnesses the villain remove his mask, to find out it's Hector ... which of course can't be, Hector's dead.

It's later that Ariane learns from her mom about Hector's twin Statross Reichmann, the contradictory HIV-positive coloured gay Nazi ... but why is he after her?

 

Storywise, La Bête Immonde has all the right elements to become an over-the-top piece of trash: Paranormal investigators, Neo Nazis, a haunted forest, a dark family secret and so on and so forth. The film on hand though is anything but that, it's more of a lyrical meditation on the themes at hand (and then some) with the haunted forest being the metaphorical center of a film (though metaphor for what seems to be open to everyone's interpretation).

All of this is carried by a delibertely slow pace, with several long and static takes, a focus on the (often haunting) beauty of nature and the like. The result is a very unusual but quite fascinating movie.

Recommended, actually!
