Gert Froebe as the good bad guy
22 March 2004 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Gert Froebe, internationally best known as "Goldfinger", the opponent of James Bond, is a safeblower, who was betrayed by his best friend. Now he's on the run and hides in a small village by impersonating a priest. There he needs all his skills to help a young widow and her son, cause Mr. Baumberger (Vogel), the "bad guy" of the village, wants to get the bailiffs onto her. The bond is locked in the safe, so you should get the idea. I like this movie very much. It's highly enjoyable and even after watching it several times I like the interaction of Froebe and Karl-Heinz Boehm (the sun of the famous conductor Karl Boehm). If you can watch it do so.
