The true story of the German mafia hitman, Giorgio Basile, AKA "Angel Face", who was connected to the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta crime syndicate and became a state witness against the Italian mafia in 1998.
DAS URTEIL is a rare gem in todays TV scene. Imagine an (almost) two man show in one setting and that over 90 Minutes - and the viewer is not bored for one second. Of course there is the two excellent actors and a very talented director by the name of Oliver Hirschbiegel. The set is a first class airport lounge and an old jewish booksalesman who is stranded by accident? No,there is someone behind the accident, but who and why is the old man traped in that scene. Very brave production. It takes some balls for the producer to choose such a script. Great entertainment. A must for anyone who likes to escape the mindless German TV Scene. 10 out of 10!
