Still image from the film In a Glass Cage
Paralyzed in an iron lung, Klaus is a former Nazi death camp doctor hiding in postwar Spain. He hires Angelo to be his nurse, unaware that the young man knows about his murderous wartime secrets and is committed to making history repeat itself. Personal and historical traumas blur together as Angelo and Klaus begin a perverse relationship where violence, power, and sexual desire become inseparable. In a Glass Cage offers a savage critique of fascism’s lingering effects upon body and mind. Prepare for a claustrophobic descent into the darkest shades of human behavior in this controversial, highly stylized art-horror classic.
