[Requiem]

Based on the same events as The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Requiem, a German film, wasn't exactly what I had expected it to be, but was compelling nonetheless. (The lead in particular, a virtual unknown, was amazing.) I had thought it would be more of a thriller, but the director presented the story sans special effects, allowing us to make up our own minds. Another intense SIFF offering. If I keep going to features like this, it's going to be an exhausting festival.
