A true classic
1 March 2001 | by (Hannover, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a real classic and, at least in its category as a made-for-tv movie, nothing less than a masterpiece. The film was the first one of numerous full-length episodes of the still-running tv-series "Tatort". Set in Leipzig, by that time a metropolis of East Germany, the film tells the story of a cop from Hamburg (West Germany) who mostly off-duty follows the tracks of a kid that died near the Autobahn at Leipzig. It is not the thriller elements that keep the viewer attentive and interested, but the people in the film and the way there story is told. No character clichés, excellent acting, good camera-work - and, not to be forgotten, a fascinating clash of two Germany cultures. It's a quite one, but far above the average of tv-movie making. A proficient film and a time document at the same time.
