Der Mann von nebenan

Deutschland 2001, TV-Spielfilm


The Man Next Door

Kate Moor and her son move away from the city, out into the country to make a new start of things. The former athlete left her husband and built up an existence for herself making wooden flutes.

Her new neighbors are the at first very helpful pensioner Willi and his mysterious wife Gudrun, the strange Malise and her son Simon, the pretty, young Rita, who has a somewhat bizarre past, and the single Inge, who lives with her deranged father. Kate learns about all these circumstances because the rest of the community forms a pact against the menacing Willi. Kate becomes the main victim of his voyeurism, his advances and the life-threatening situations he brings her and her son into. Then Inge′s father is found dead at a construction site. Finally the rest of the group win over Kate′s support and together work out a plot to bring Willi′s bullying to an end.
