Jan is a 16-year-old juvenile delinquent placed under the watchful eye of Elsa Seifert, a stern, driven, and uncompromising 49-year-old probation officer. Elsa cares for her charges, but tolerates no stepping out of line. But now, as she approaches 50, cracks begin to appear in Elsa's professionalism. As her grown daughter prepares to leave home, and her marriage becomes more and more strained, Elsa longs for the intensity of experiencing something outside of her routine, something outside the norm.
Young, obsessed, Jan eagerly fills this void, offering to sexually subjugate himself to her. And Elsa enters willingly into this risky venture, desiring the verboten, but knowing it cannot end well.
Winner of the Golden Leopard prize at the 2006 Locarno Film Festival, PUNISH ME features engaging performances from Kostja Ullmann, one of the standout, lead actors in the theatrical release SUMMER STORM and from Maren Kroymann, a distinguished lesbian actress from Germany.

As for the film, it features excellent performances from Hamburg born Kostja Ullmann as the 16/17 year old juvenile delinquent named Jan, who succeeds - by dint of sheer hard work - in so inflaming his 50 year old parole officer, convincingly played by Maren Kroymann, that she adopts a role opposite to that of Isabelle Hubert in The Piano Teacher - here it is she who succumbs to Jan's urgings to inflict bondage,pain and humiliation upon him.
Director Angelina Maccarone has chosen to shoot the film in black and white and it was nearly an hour before this struck me. I think the film works very well if one makes allowances for a number of plot implausibilities, and the excellent cast does a good job in compensating for these.
I am looking at the DVD cover, which features a sultry, bare chested Kostja Ullmann and I have to say that I didn't see this scene anywhere in the movie - is it a publicity shot to seduce the Summer Storm audience?

suffocating status in the states. "Midnight Cowboy" in it's original
cut was X rated yet allowed to be released into lst run theaters. That
could never happen now. The latest thing that is to be banned is smoking, and use of the N word.
I still need to learn how to locate the English on the selection
There is some progress, the movie "Suddenly" was banned for over 40 years, staring Frank Sinatra is now available.
The Walt Disney movie "Song of the South" remains off the market.
