The story of the perverted child murderer SCHROTT (Fröbe) and his hunter MATTHAEI (Rühmann) is still thrilling and frightening. The present events ensure that the story remains current. Fröbe and Rühmann can show their acting skills (what they were not always allowed to do).
To keep it short:
Ingenious actors in a great film, which is based on a great book, that was written by an ingenious author.
I'm waiting for the Hollywood-remake.
