Thrilling crime story
19 January 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Based on a crime novel by Horst Bosetzky (-ky) this is one of Wolfgang Petersen's first cinema productions. The student Bernd Ziegenhals discovers that one of the professors at university has faked his doctoral thesis and blackmails him. The plot is thrilling because the professor does not stay passive, he tries to get rid of Ziegenhals. Who of them will survive at the end?

The movie is much better than the novel (which is very rare). The end is surprising and also different to the novel. I'm wondering if Petersen is thinking about a Hollywood remake of this film. The plot has a lot of potential and with better special effects than it was possible in 1974 it could be a winner.
