Synopsis:
The second feature film from German provocateur Jorg Buttgereit, depicts seven suicides across seven days of the week. As a chain letter from the self-proclaimed Brotherhood of the Seventh Day circulates, encouraging its recipients to end their lives, a series of grim vignettes unfold. In one, a young woman massacres a room of concert-goers before turning the gun on herself; in another, a man, wracked by some unspecified mental torment, repeatedly slams his head into a wall before collapsing in a pool of his own blood...These are just some of the depictions of death and despair that make up the tortured fabric of Der Todesking.
