Good TV criminal thriller with Franka Potente
3 December 1999 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

Franka Potente (RUN LOLA RUN) drew me to this film. I was disappointed she does not have as much screen time as the the other main characters. But nevertheless OPERNBALL (a "who done it" following a Neo-Nazi attack at a Viennese Opera Ball) is entertaining and worth watching. It gives insight on the threat of Neo Nazi youth in Europe today.
