a WW2 "whodunnit" which slows down after an ok start
11 February 2003 | by (FIN) – See all my reviews

The movie is set in Austria just after WW2, the driver and friend of a British officer of the occupation force is murdered and this incident leads to a new conflict between the winners and the losers..

In my opinion this movie was okay, it has an experienced cast (mainly german speaking veteran actors like Mario Adorf and Wolfgang Preiss) who try their best in a mediocre script, Anthony Andrews looks a bit lost a few times though.

One of the more brighter performances is by Helmut Griem, who is very good as the manic police officer.

I give this film ** out of *****
