Jakob (Ludwig Reuter) is a successful writer - but he chooses to live in relative anonymity in Berlin Kreuzberg. One of the few people he lets near himself is his girlfriend Linda (Sandra Bourdonnec), whom he loves very much, and who loves him back ... but here's where the problem starts, he has a recurring nightmare that Linda will kill him, and over time he becomes more and more convinced that this nightmare will become reality eventually. Plus sleeping becomes an impossibility, and that really tears him down.

The real problem though, Linda, despite all the love she feels, is really out to kill Jakob, not for personal reasons, but because she's a "creature of the fog", and her raison d'être is to kill Jakob, no matter how much she might fight it.

Jakob asks his best friend Kurt to kill Linda for him, just so he can live (and sleep) in peace again. This shouldn't be a problem for Kurt, as he not only really cares for Jakob, but he also is a contract killer by trade. Problem is, he isn't quite as successful in his job as he claims to be ...


The Devil of Kreuzberg seems like a film misplaced in time, it's highly reminiscent of genre cinema of the 1970s and 80s, with its slightly trippy story, its art rock and new wave musical score, its artistic ambitions and borrowing from nouvelle vague and arthouse cinema, and its whole approach to genre filmmaking that's free of post-modern self-irony and Tarantino-isms.

That said, The Devil of Kreuzberg is hardly a derivative movie, it does tell a very original story with high drama and even points of humour, directed in a wonderfully un-flashy way, carried by subtle performances and highlighted with a few exciting setpieces. Really worth a watch!
