This is a great early film by director Wolfgang Petersen and in my opinion, it is the closest Germany ever got to the "New Hollywood Style" of that time. The atmosphere of the West-Berlin locations are captured perfectly in this raw and intelligent thriller, and the city looks different as in any other film it has been shown. Many of the actors and crew members were at the very beginning of their careers when they starred in this picture, especially the young Jürgen Prochnow and Otto Sanders give great performances. Too bad it's not available on DVD, it's definitely one of those films that aged very well and should get a proper anniversary release. 9/10
