Graf quietly remade several of his own works - second chances to finally get it right, he'd probably say. Polizeiruf 110: Der scharlachrote Engel is arguably the richest of these variations. The basic set-up here is somewhat similar to that of Der Fahnder: Nachtwache (augmented by elements from Der Fahnder: Verhör am Sonntag), only this time a woman living out her exhibitionist desires is under attack by a messianic sex psycho who's out to deliver her...
Florentine Engelhard (nickname Flo, internet porno handle Angel, embodied by Nina Kunzendorf) is one of Graf's most touching creations: pale, slender, with short curly hair and round, curious eyes, she remains unapologetic about her passions, whatever spiritual devastation they leave in their wake. She's confident, composed, smart, sexy and almost impossible to faze. In the film's most stunning scene, she meets some net clients in court - the 'hello' with which she greets them is in itself reason enough to fall in love with her. Screened together with Der Fahnder: Nachtwache.
