PUNISH ME
Directed by Angelina Maccarone

A juvenile delinquent pulls his 49-year-old probation officer into a sado-masochistic affair.

Stars hottie Kostja Ullmann of the gay hit
SUMMER STORM.


87 min. / in German with English and Spanish subtitles / photographed in stunning B&W



“Kostja Ullman and Maren Kroymann set the screen ablaze with astounding acting!”
Amos Lassen, CINEMA PRIDE

“PUNISH ME has an attractively perverse take on sexual desire! A drama that sticks to the ribs!”
Derek Elley, VARIETY


“This is a quiet and exacting film, full of tiny details and subtle emotions; its poetry feels intensely personal.”
Candace Moore, CURVE MAGAZINE

“Thanks to the actors and directing, the relationship comes to life in a way that is both cogent and touching.”
Ranai Pahav, FETISH LORE


"Working from Susanne Billig's economic script and shunning all frills and thrills, Maccarone’s precise direction takes care of every little detail. Throughout she conveys a real, fierce and tormenting passion which burns up both the narrative’s lead protagonists, despite their differences in age, social status and culture. To Maccarone's credit she steers clear of any cheap psychological analysis, telling the facts without interference through photography and editing and allowing the audience to draw its own conclusions.”
Dan Fainaru, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“Queer and provocative!”
Candace Moore, CURVE MAGAZINE

“Very much worth seeing, for people interested in good cinema, sadomasochism, or both.”
Ranai Pahav, BOUND FORUM


“Audiences will be seduced by the film's tremendous sexual tension!”
Gary Kramer, InLA MAGAZINE


“(An) endearing sadomasochistic work!”
Candace Moore, CURVE MAGAZINE


“An erotic exploration of a double-tabooed relationship! It’s brave filmmaking, and a masterful stroke to let the performers and story take the lead! Kroymann and Ullman are marvelous actors! ”
Laura Tiffany, HOME MEDIA RETAILING
