Directed by Anno Saul, The Door (Die Tür), released on DVD by Optimum Home Entertainment on 18th April 2011, is a dark fantasy-thriller centering on a broken man, given a second chance at life following a tragic accident.

David Andernach (Mads Mikkelsen, Casino Royale, Valhalla Rising, Clash of The Titans) seemingly had it all; a successful painter with a wealthy home in the suburbs, a devoted wife Maja (Jessica Schwarz, Perfume: The Story of a murderer) and a beautiful young daughter, Leonie (Valeria Eisenbart).

But one summer's day, instead of taking Leonie on a trip into the forest to catch butterflies, he stays behind to wile away the afternoon with his mistress Gia (Heike Makatsch, Resident Evil, Love Actually). Returning, he finds that Leonie has drowned after falling into the family pool.

We meet David again five years later, shabby, divorced, and not having painted in years. But after being driven by guilt to try to drown himself in the very same pool, he's led by a butterfly to a hidden tunnel that opens onto the very day Leonie died. However David's joy at what initially appears to be a chance for redemption soon fades as it dawns everything in the past is not as it seems.

Playing out in the vein of a Greek tragedy, The Door is both an accomplished supernatural thriller and a dark moral fable, adapted from the 2001 novel Die Damalstuer by Akif Pirinçci, widely regarded as Germany's Stephen King.
