old-age: Dead Again

Dead Again

A private detective tries to help a disturbed young woman who has lost her memory. The secret of her identity and her disturbance seems to lie in her experience in a tragic past life. The aged Inga (Hanna Schygulla) turns out to hold the key to events in the Strauss household forty years previously which led to Roman Strauss being executed for the murder of his wife.

Unfortunately, the aged Inga is only seen in one scene set in a dimly-lit room and although I’ve tried a number of times I’ve never been happy with the image quality.

The makeup

Thomas R Burman & Bari Dreiband-Burman were responsible for special makeup effects on the movie; Dan Striepeke was makeup artist; Leonard Engelman was second makeup artist.
