More than a police thriller, complex film merits close attention.
Special-unit policeman Karl Simon sees someone who is supposed to be dead, and is caught up in a whirlwind of political corruption and treachery. His job and happy family are threatened by a sexy affair, a kidnapping scheme, and accusations of being an accomplice to a crime. He is used as a pawn in a game but ends up playing by his own rules, in a cat-and-mouse thrilling chase that ends in a climactic cable-car scene set high in the Bavarian Alps. Complex film merits close attention as double-cross meets double-double-cross.
