The discreet charm of the Borgman

Having been driven out of his lair in the woods by an armed priest and his henchmen, the mysterious Borgman makes his way to an upscale neighbourhood where he knocks on the door of Richard and Marina. Having initially been chased away by Richard, Borgman quickly returns, and in short time he developes a close bond with Marina. Behind Richard's back, the bearded stranger moves in with the family, and slowly but surely he starts taking control of their lives
