Makes Burt Bacharach seem sinister
22 July 2002 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

A slow-burning Hitchcock-style thriller.

Toter Mann keeps you guessing until the end and is possibly the only film you'll ever see that makes the song "What the World Needs Now is Love" seem sinister.

I saw it at the 2002 Karlovy Vary film festival. Worth watching if it comes your way.
