Definitely no highlight compared to other "Schimanskis"
It should be the last Schimanski-Tatort and unfortunately the last cooperation between Schimanski and Thanner. The plot is simple: Schimanski has a sex affair with the wife of a high official and finds himself again in a very hot case of corruption. Of course nobody believes him, he becomes suspended and gets into a lot of trouble... In the end everything is all right: Schimmi proves the official's guilt but when his chief offers him a possibility to return in service, he says "NO" takes his hang glider and flys away after throwing down his legendary jacket, loudly screaming "Scheiße" in the sky over Duisburg. In this movie there are a lot of hommages and : His old chief Königsberg appears, Schimmi has to work as a department store detective (Highlight !), he is examined by a female psychologist - all this scenes are played with the typical Schimanski humour and of course good old Thanner and Hänschen play their very special part. The second big disadvantage of "Der Fall Schimanski" after the stupid plot is something all of the later Schimmis have: The protagonists become more and more comic figures and parody themselves. So if you want to see typical Schimmi scenes combined with a lot of irony, you will like this movie. But: There are a lot more Schimanski-Tatort with a better plot and a higher level of humor.
