Mephisto no longer has any effect as an image of horror, whereas the phantom of the Arab gangster increasingly influences society and politics. With Goethe, Milton and the actors' experiences with the representation of these two figures, a story is composed in which the demonized characters move out of their assigned roles. Through linguistic and physical reflection, a binary understanding of the world with classifications of good and evil, top and bottom, male and female, is to be questioned.

"A highlight is Isabella Sedlak's 'From Hell With Love', starring Gorki's usual suspects Orit Nahmias and Yousef Sweid, alongside Swedish actor Lindy Larsson."
