Storyline

Journalist Moritz Nestler is working on an article about the neat madness and the way it's danger is played down by the politicians. A bullock's head, which is infected with the disease, is played into his hands and makes him realize that Germany is now affected by BSE too. In unofficial interviews with scientists he learns that BSE possibly could infect humans too - but before he can publish anything, he's found dead. His girlfriend and colleague Ute Boehning doesn't believe in an accident and wants to continue his investigation - although her father, who owns a slaughter-house, asks her not to.

TERRIBLE ANTI-CLIMAX AND A LOT OF LOOSE ENDS
4 October 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A crime story that fits within the tradition of the German Problemfilm. Central theme is the Creutzfeldt-Jacob syndrome and BSE (mad cow disease) that was a hot item a couple of years ago. The viewer is fully informed - as in a typical Aufklärungsfilm - about these items and this information is contained in in an exciting but in the end unsatisfactory film, well-directed by Roland Suso Richter.

At one moment BSE must have struck the makers as towards the end things get incomprehensible; the final scene is a terrible anti-climax. Who send the murderer? Who or what is behind it all? Did the makers themselves had any idea about all the loose ends the viewer is left with?
