Even good actors cannot drag a film with poor screenplay out of dull hollowness.
An attractive immigrant from Romania breaks free from her husband through prostitution, blackmail, robbery and murder. She is accompanied by her next-door neighbor, a skinny unemployed male who is equally obsessed with videotaping the above mentioned sex service worker and with robbing her clients of excessive cash. Better-than-average acting by Oana Solomonescu and Florian Lukas and good operator work by the cameraman J. Widmer can not offset the complete absence of humor in the entire movie. The showcase of the handheld weapons and the apparent nonexistence of the police in the city of Berlin are hardly convincing as well. Evidently, the director (Otto Jahrreiss) was much more preoccupied with lights, shadows and colors than with producing a valuable story.
