Dear viewers, director Ralf Huettner called his

feature film "The Curse" "a mystery thriller",

which we hope is exciting

and entertaining for you.

The story is about a hike in the Alps, which

becomes a true nightmare for a young family.

It blends elements of the mountain- and Heimatfilm with fantasy

and horror in a original and optically fascinating way.

- "It is a land lost, a

moon grows in the reeds.

It froze with us, it glows around and sees.

It glows around and sees.

It sees, it sees, we see, I see you, you see.

The ice will rise, before the hour ends,

before the hour ends."

[Ice, Eden by Paul Celan]

Stop, I don't see anything.

Sit down.

No, but not next to me.

Give me the glasses!

Give them to me!

Pasta for everyone!

Bring it on!

Bring it on!

Be quiet for once!


No pasta for animals.

No pasta for animals.

Nonsense, animals eat everything.

There, now he is going into the basement

and wants to put her in the freezer,

but when he opens the lid, the other

bodies have repaired themselves.

Is he really going into the basement?

Ah shucks, I do not think so.

What does that mean?

My key!

Oh. There!

Are you leaving already?


I'm going to the flea market tomorrow.

We do too. Are you coming?

Can't. We're going away tomorrow.

There! Now he is going into the basement.

I told you so.

Shut up. Get lost.


Bye. Bye. Bye.

It's my fault.

It was my fault.

I... I can't get up.

I can't get up.

Who are you?



so cold!

Can I help?

What kind of child is that?

No, don't.

What kind of child is that!?

- Slowly... careful... You are hurting yourself!

- That's...

no no...

What kind of child is that?


Hello. If you want to eat something special

tomorrow, you have to tell me now.


These are the same shoes I've got.

I hate them. I feel like a clumsy person.

Do you need gloves?


Did you understand something?


Want something to eat?

Where have you been?

At Martins.

Watching videos?

What's up?


Parking tickets!

Bite me!

Watch it!

That had to happen.

At least you saved two Marks.

Ten Marks!

They charge ten Marks...

Yes, look at that!

...for parking eight hours.

Count me out.

Ten marks for parking eight hours.

They might as well charge 50. What a joke.

There was sugar in it, too.

Now everything's sticky.

Wake up!

This is starting great.

Good morning!

We are going to start soon.

I don't like mountain climbing.

You don't like mountain climbing.

I know.

Nobody likes mountain climbing.

Where are... where are the maps?


did you pack the hiking map?

I don't care. I have had enough already.

Something wrong?

I'm not going up there

with this sticky thing.

Thank you.

You're going to sweat a lot.

That's way too warm.

Don't worry!

I am not going to sweat

because I am going to walk slowly

and I refuse to be rushed by you.

There's the piece of sh*t. Darn, I

would have needed it yesterday.


Are we going to have coffee?

What do you want?

There was a small inn.

Drinking coffee...

and then you want to eat breakfast,

and afterwards you are tired again.

We could have stayed home then.


Come with me!

Come on dad!

Rotor, rotor, rotor, rotor...

Get off!

I'm not in the mood anymore.

Well? Isn't it beautiful?

What did I say?

Nobody here.

Do you know why? Because there's no coffee,

no cake, no Wiener Schnitzel, nothing.

Only good air.

When did we go mountain

climbing for the first time?

Do you remember that?

Yes you never wanted to.

It was exactly eight years

and four months ago.

Yes true, I still had my Admiral then.

My God, how much we put into

the transmission of the car.

That was actually pretty

mean of you back then.

How so?

Oh yes...

Cleverly arranged.

Do you regret it?

I don't.

But I can only imagine that I was not the

only one who climbed up there with you.

I swear.

Your backpack is open.

But the only one who fell for it.

Oh yeah?

Rotor, rotor, rotor, rotor...

No more:
Helicopter rotor...

That's cold!

But it feels good.

I think my feet have gone dead.

Take small steps, ok?

So now I let go of you. You wait here.

I'll go ahead and then I'll

give you my hand.

It's going to be steep, be careful.


That's too fast for me.



What's written here?

To the right.

Another hour and we are on the top.

I said approximately.

Melanie, wait a minute.

Rolf, what's with this junction?

Are you sure that we are on the right track?

We are right!

I know the place.

I do!

Melanie please.

I don't understand it either.

But I do! Over there is in fact a ravine.

We are in the midst of the ravine.

But I know for sure.

Melanie, we have never been here.

What are you doing?

You don't know this place.

I suspect that we got on the wrong side.

I just wonder how.

Shouldn't we rather go back?

No! Why? I'd like so much to go up there.

You of all people.

Then let us go a little bit further.

Further up, there must be

a bigger track. This one.

According to your map, I am

already on the top for an hour.

Mom there!

They will die. Let them live.

Look what I found! Over there!

What is it?

I won't tell. Come here yourselves.

That's the chapel!


isn't it?

Do you know the altitude?

1611 meters.

We have really lost our way.

It's at least 10 km to the car.

Come on, remove the chain.
