Dir. Michael Steiner, Switzerland 2010, 110 min. Swiss German w/English subtitles, BluRay proj.
1975 in the Swiss Alps. A maenadic woman of stunning beauty turns up in a remote mountain village.
As she does not talk, the local police man makes an honest attempt to find out, who she is. Circumstances suggest, that she descended from the mountains, where Alpine herdsmen do unimaginable things to get female companionship.
In the process of this investigation, things come to life, that had better been hidden.
They unleash a tragedy of lust, insanity and murder on this seemingly idyllic Alpine world.
Sennentuntschi was the unrivaled Swiss boxoffice hit in 2010.
