The Old Lady´s Visit (2008)

A new film version of the play by Friedrich Dürrenmatt

Claire Zachanassian, successful businesswoman, billionaire and cosmopolitan pays a visit to the town of Güllen. She once lived here as Klara Wäscher, a beautiful young woman who was full of life, who fell in love with Alfred Ill and became pregnant. After a serious car accident, which left her permanently disabled, Alfred left her. Klara had lost everything: her health, her baby, her love and most importantly her believe in the good of mankind. She refused to be defeated and with a great amount of assertiveness paired with a sharp mind she works her way to the very top. When she returns to Güllen as a wealthy woman she is determined to take revenge on Alfred - which is why she makes the citizens of the town a murderous offer.
