Das Experiment: It began as a game in the name of science. Twenty men (eight 'guards' and twelve 'prisoners') in an intense two week investigation into aggressive behaviour in a simulated prison environment. It soon became a quest to survive...
Based on a real life psychological experiment, Oliver Hirschbiegel's debut feature is a resonant, hard-hitting look at the abuse of power and the corruption of authority. Masterfully shot with the use of hidden cameras, the film builds to a bloody and thrilling climax. Nominated as the German contender for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, Das Experiment features a no holds barred performance by Moritz Bleibtreu as Tarek, a heroic undercover journalist who stands up against the brutalities inflicted by the would-be guards.
