Storyline

Konrad von Seidlitz is a young yuppie lawyer currently celebrating his engagement with Cornelia, daughter of minister of justice Volkerts. As a public relations gag, he hasn't paid his parking fines for two years and now insists on being sentenced to jail for two weeks as punishment. Using his knowledge as a lawyer he makes the best out of his visit in jail still working, still in a splendid mood and not adapting to any rule. Probably a good way to get the desired public attention, but also a good way to make enemies inside the jail-house. One day before Konrad is to be released his booth is searched and two hundred grams of cocaine are found. That's a serious problem even for a brilliant lawyer like Konrad and even if you're innocent.

How law fails
1 May 2001 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Indeed this movie from Roland Suso Richter is a masterpiece, illustrating perfectly that the law nowadays is not always about right judgements and that everyone with some brains is capable to misinform or mislead the judges. Except of the performances of the main character played by Kai Wiesinger, where the yuppie lawyer is not convincing I was under impression of the achievements of Michael Mendl playing Czernetzky the prisoner. I can not understand that such movie was not presented for any festival, it sure had won several prizes.
