Description

Berlin's hip present comes up against the city's dark past in these seven supernatural tales by the son of the great filmmaker who "e;shares his father's curious and mordant wit"e; (The Financial Times).In these hair-raising stories from the celebrated filmmaker and author Rudolph Herzog, millennial Berliners discover that the city is still the home of many unsettledand deeply unsettlingghosts. And those ghosts are not very happy about the newcomers.Thus the coddled daughter of a rich tech executive finds herself slowly tormented by the poltergeist of a Weimer-era laborer, and aGerman intelligence officer confronts a troll wrecking havoc upon the city's unbuilt airport.An undead Nazi sympathizer romances a Greek emigre, while Turkish migrants curse the gentrifiers that have evicted them.Herzog's keen observational eye and acid wit turn modern city stories into deliciously dark satires that ride the knife-edge of suspenseful and terrifying.
