Interesting noir crime drama
6 October 2003 | by (Eastern U.S.) – See all my reviews

I saw the English language version. Some of the dialog seemed a bit stilted from the translation. Motorcycle driving beatnik gang with Elke Sommer along for the ride. By day these kids have real jobs; by night they hang out in a bar and plan their crimes. A mohair sweater wearing leader named Walter leads them along like sheep. These are post-Hitler German youth who want it all NOW. On a side note, the jukebox in the bar plays some very familiar "oldies" like Charlie Brown and an Elvis tune, all sung in German.
