Garden of Love

Garden of Love
Scene from "Garden of Love"

On an idyllic Christmas evening, all members of the Verlaine Commune are brutally massacred by a mysterious killer. The only survivor of the tragedy is Verlaine's young daughter Rebecca, who is seriously wounded and falls into a long coma.

Two years later, she awakes but her mind has blocked all past memories. Adopted by her aunt and uncle and thinking them to be her parents, the horrible truth is kept from her.

Ten years later, just when Rebecca thinks her life is wonderful and she seemingly has the perfect relationship, strange visions begin to haunt her as the dead are seeking revenge.


Olaf Ittenbach , born in 1969, grew up in Fuerstenfeldbruck, just outside of Munich. At the age of 13, he started taking an interest in make-up and special effects. He began his first film, Black Past in his spare time - a project that later (1989) turned into a burning interest and passion for film. His other films include Burning Moon (1992), Premutos (1997), Legion of the Dead (2000), Riverplay (2000), Beyond the Limits (2002), and Garden of Love (2003).
