Sybille (Jean Bork) has an affair with an older man - which would be
alright, until his wife, Stephanie (Ingrid Littmann), a mousey religious
fundamentalist, finds out and pays her a visit. At first, Stephanie tries
to make Sybille see the right path by heavily quoting from the
bible, but when that doesn't help, she knocks her out and ties her up,
planning to cut up her face then murder her.
But even all tied up, Sybille hasn't run out of ideas, as she actually
manages to slip some sleeping pills into Stephanie's coffee - which put
Stephanie out for a while, but not long enough ... she comes to while
Sybille is still trying to free herself, ties her up even better, then
she murders her, just like that. Then she phones the police, giving
herself up. But before the police arrives, Stephanie finds a letter by her
husband, addressed to Sybille, in which he actually breaks up with Sybille
... tough luck.
Second episode of the Unhappy End-series ... which would
work a lot better wasn't it so similar to the first episode (click
here). Actually, the idea of the religious fanatic gone bonkers
does come off pretty well, but apart from that, the plot including all the
plot twists is just a recap from the earlier story ... which is a pity.
