For quite some time now, model Saskia (Bianca Lindenberg) has been
receiving threatening letters.
One day, Saskia receives a visit from Christina (Maren Beutler), her
former best friend, but their friendship came to an end when Saskia stole
Christina's boyfriend. But now Christina has come to bury the past and
make up, she has even brought a bottle of Champagne. Only too late, Saskia
realizes that her glass of Champagne is actually drugged, and she passes
out. When she comes to again, she finds herself tied up, with Christina
announcing that she is going to kill her, slowly, for taking away her
boyfriend. Saskia makes an attempt to escape, and even stabs Christina
with a file, but to no avail, Christina now only ties her up even tighter.
Before Christina proceeds to kill Saskia though, she finds a yet unopened
letter from her ex to Saskia, and when she opens it, she reads that he
actually wants to split up with Saskia to come back to her, Christina.
Overcome with joy, Christina unties Saskia (since now there's no need
to kill her anymore), and it seems the two women now can become friends
again ... until Saskia takes a knife and stabs Christina to death. And her
boyfriend - Christina's ex - she keeps.
First in the Unhappy End !-series of featurettes,
produced by the independent German production company Gator-Group
(which, for some reason quite often involve someone tieing up someone else
out of jealousy). On one hand, this film falls into the traps of so many
truly independent productions - bad acting, poor sound, a clearly very
limited budget. The saving graces of the film are its decent camerawork
and direction and most of all a thought-through story with a nice twist at
the end. So, it might not be great cinema, but it's totally watchable.
