Into the Abyss - A Tale of Death, a Tale of Life

Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog turns a keen and understanding eye to the fates of two men who destroyed their lives, and those of others, by a senseless triple murder. He gazes into the abyss of the human soul as he lets the two – one of whom will be executed eight days after the interview – sketch their version of the events. “A poignant, lyrical documentary that ranks among the director’s finest and leaves the viewer with plenty to reflect upon and digest,” wrote Screen Daily.
