Another great German thriller!
3 June 2002 | by (Apeldoorn / Holland) – See all my reviews

Actually this German movie was made for T.V. It was received so well however that it was showed at the Rotterdam Film-festival in 2002. I don't know what the score was in Holland but I found this one very good. Not being focused on German movies - so far only a few did the trick for me e.g. "Run Lola Run" and "Das Boot" - I can definitely add "Toter Mann" to my list. The story is about a lawyer (Richter) who falls in love with the nice looking Leyla who he meets at a swimming pool. After an 'interesting' night she disappears.... Before Richter has any notice, he is captured in a murder mystery with a riveting climax and a surprising end. Very well played by the cast and superb directing (great colors!) in an intelligent movie that will keep you to the edge of your seat!! 9 out of 10.
