      Helen O'Hara Empire Magazine A tragic tale of teen rebellion and misplaced faith, this is a sober and sobering account of a young girl's untimely end, made enthralling by great performances and restrained direction. Rated: 4/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Wesley Morris Boston Globe Working from an economical and intelligent script by Bernd Lange , Schmid directs his first feature with the easy conviction that eluded the makers of the preposterous Emily Rose. Rated: 3/4 Nov 24, 2006 Full Review David Mattin BBC.com A naturalistic and thrillingly powerful film, with a stand-out performance from Hller at its centre. Rated: 4/5 Nov 21, 2006 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts It really lured me in... very interesting to see the way things play out. Oct 26, 2020 Full Review Ryan Pollard Starburst In the end, Requiem is something of a disappointment. Rated: 6/10 Mar 16, 2018 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures an intense, disturbing and bleak drama of ecstasy and insanity, all set in a world where, if there is a God at all, it truly requires a leap of faith into the dark to grasp Him.

      diane S Can't stand that actress but a really good movie nonetheless. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Alec B A refreshingly blunt movie about the dangers of treating faith as fact. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Audience Member A refreshingly blunt movie about the dangers of treating faith as fact. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Ez egy rakas szar volt Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A bit too slow to be truly enjoyable Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A PG or G telling of the Anneliese Michel story. They took out all the juicy stuff and left us with a very incomplete picture of what happened. And even then, they left out the exorcisms, her further deterioration and the subsequent court cases. Wiki it for more details that were selectively left out here. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
