Two bank robbers hold the clerks hostage and demand 3 million German marks as ransom. What the police do not realise is that the true criminal mastermind watches them from outside the bank, anticipating every move.
A man in a gleaming white suit comes to a small Southern town on the eve of integration. He calls himself a social reformer. But what he does is stir up trouble--trouble he soon finds he can't control.
This film about Hamburg's prostitution scene appears rather dated today, although this may have more to do with changed society than with the film being overly unrealistic. The cast is excellent, but perhaps a little too excellent: most speaking parts are cast with well-known German character actors; while they all can handle their parts quite comfortably I watched this constantly thinking "where have I seen this guy before?" and therefore I found it impossible to suspend disbelief. Anyway, a film that features both Horst Frank and Werner Pochath as villains cannot be a complete failure.
