Art-House Indie Sci-Fi Thriller from famed French Director.
An epidemic of greed is the cause of bizarre deaths that is sweeping through a future-shocked city. The city is Berlin in the 21 st Century. A city controlled by hypnotic propaganda brought to them by huge corporate conglomerate. Alan Bates directs the subliminal madness. His disembodied heart beats faster as the deaths increase and the panic builds. The Assassin (andew mccarthy) is the wall between freedom and mass destruction. Chaos descends as this world of the future rushes to oblivion. Euro Sci-Fi thriller from acclaimed director Claude Chabrol. Foreign International film with American cast featuring Andrew McCarthy and Jennifer Beals. 1990 US Uncut Prism video Release 112mins.

As this science fiction movie opens, we witness three events in Berlin (before the fall of the wall) resulting in multiple deaths. In one case, an explosion is so horrific that people on both sides of the Berlin Wall are killed. At a high level meeting of government officials, military officers and police there is a debate: are these accidents or are they suicides. Over 500 people have been killed in similar circumstances. Lt. Hartman argues that they are suicides, perhaps there is a suicide virus. He is overruled and the management of the investigation is reassigned to Capt. Engler. Dr. Marsfeldt enters the meeting (why?). He suggests people need more vacations, and he happens to run Theratos Company a provider of vacation travel. Once outside, Hartman observes projection screens above street level protraying Sonja Vogler (Jennifer Beals)repeating in a hypnotic cadence "It is time to get away." These are ads for Theratos.

Despite Engler's repeated repudiation of Hartman's investigation, Hartman continues on. The rest of the story is told from Hartman's point of view. There are more deaths. A link is discovered in that each of the deceased possesses either a picture of Sonja or a card with the logo of Theratos. How is she connected to these victims? Elements of the plot include Hartman meeting Vogler, an assasination attempt on Sonja, Hartman's romance of her, the death of Hartman's police partner Stieglitz(murder or suicide?), secret reports by Capt. Engler to Dr. Marsfeldt, and the aura of the Club Extinction where Berlin's jaded youth rock maniacally while images of mushroom cloud explosions play on the club walls. What is Sonja's link to the series of deaths? Is she a victim of the strange manipulations of Dr. Marsfeldt?
