Storyline

Bamberg 1630. The era of witch-hunting. The surgeon professor Cornelius (Mark Waschke) returns from Vienna, where he is a renowned physician, to his homeland.

Snow in June, crop failures, the Catholic Church is worried about those obvious signs of the Devil's presence in the Reformation and its growing power.

No real acting, more like a documentary. Everybody plays a role, nobody is really present. Found it boring, more like ZDF Terra X than a real movie. No surprises. Some nudity doesn't improve the piece. However, if you know nothing about that time, there will be some educational insights.
