When a protective father meets a murderous ex-con, both need to deviate from the path they are on as they soon find themselves entangled in a downwards spiral of lies and violence while having to confront their own inner psyche.
Five married guys conspire to secretly share a penthouse loft in the city--a place where they can carry out hidden affairs and indulge in their deepest fantasies. But the fantasy becomes a nightmare when they discover the dead body of an unknown woman in the loft, and they realize one of the group must be involved.
Erik Van Looy
I watched Babeck when I was fourteen - a "street cleaner" in these times! And I lay under my armchair with thrill! The second part - o.k. but how long did it take until the last part of solution! Nowadays you might say: Nice try, thrill of the 60s, now completely obsolete. Nothing of that! This movie has been made with very much love and enthusiasm, with very good actors and a mighty fine direction. It's not only nostalgy that makes me say this - still I'm very fond of this movie and many more of this kind - "11:20" (also a three-part-series of the same mighty kind), the Pater Brown-movies with Heinz Rühmann, all Karl May-novel-movies and all the Edgar Wallace-movies. O.k., all German productions but of a kind you don't find today any more. And that's a really great pity! I love them as much as I love Margret Rutherford's Miss-Marple-movies. I could relate all night but that shall do now ... I hope that I am not alone concerning that.
Still under my armchair ... Gandalf
