    • Synopsis
    • Sophie, a student of Egyptology, and Christoph, an unemployed actor, apply to a classified ad to look after a house for six weeks with good payment. In the house they meet for the first time. The rules say that they can do whatever they want in the house except one thing: there is one locked room which they are not allowed to enter. Strange things begin to occur. The inhabitants of the house are sure they are being observed, manipulated. More and more they project their hidden thoughts and feelings into this locked room. Between dream and reality, they develop a labyrinth of emotions…
      “I think all houses have a forbidden room, whether it is locked or not.” says Christoph and Sophie answers “just like our soul”. This short dialogue outlines the film. The heart of the story is not the mysterious incidents in the house but the hidden feelings of the occupants.
