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
Big city lawyer Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder. Hank sets out to discover the truth and, along the way, reconnects with his estranged family.

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
