A small German port at the turn of the century, nestled in a romantic river landscape with dense woods and a large ruined castle on a hill. Laurin, a pretty girl aged nine, lives together with her young mother Flora in a remote, ivy-clad cottage in the middle of the forest. Laurin's father is a sailor, and is often away for months at a time. One evening, after taking her husband to the harbour, Flora dies on the way home under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the icy water of the river. Flora's death feels like a horrible accident, yet her young daughter feels something evil is concealed in the village community. On the same evening, a young gypsy boy is also killed.
As she grows older, Laurin becomes tortured by bizarre dreams and visions. Step by step she realises that her mother and the gypsy boy have fallen victim to a murderer who haunts the castle in the company of a black, wolfish dog. One last vision reveals to Laurin the circumstances of her mothers death, and in frantic despair Laurin attempts to save her life and to defeat the murderer.

Has potential... - Laurin review by RD

Spoiler Alert

...but flawed here by a poor print and only a terrible English dub, though a German film. Disappointing because there is a lot of well sustained mood but eventually undermined by a poor release. Though to be fair, some people call this twisty and it's not. the Who Did It is obvious not that that matters because it feels to me to be more of a mood piece. Still worth watching for the atmosphere, you just wish you could watch it in the original German and in a shiny new transfer that the film probably deserves.
