SteppenwolfDVD - 2006
From Herman Hesse's best-selling classic comes a pictorially stunning tale of one man's unquenchable thirst for self-knowledge and a journey into madness like you've never experienced before. Harry Haller is a suicidal, lonely writer precariously balanced on the brink of madness. Into his desparing world comes the seductive and enigmatic Hermine who promises to revitalize Harry, but only if he slavishly follows her every wish-even that Harry must eventually fall in love with her- and then kill her! Thus begins Harry's journey into a nightmarish realm of "The Magic Thearte," a carnival of the senses where Hermine initiates Harry to all the pleasures of the mind and body. There, in a chilling final confrontation, he ultimately realizes his inner potential for evil as well as good.
