I guess talent made this one special
7 March 2010 | by (Bavaria, Germany) – See all my reviews

I always remembered this one best, from all of the Kommissar Rex episodes, and I always remembered Christoph Waltz best, not his name, only his face and his character, who is also the title character and the murderer of the week. As much lighthearted this TV show is, in the scenes with the dog and his master and the police men, as gritty and depressing the show gets, when we come to the murderer. And Christoph Waltz is especially disturbing. He just nails those characters. But, when I looked up this title to review it, I just happen to see who the director of this episode was. And I was quiet surprised that it was Oliver Hirschbiegel, who, among others, directed DAS EXPERIMENT and DER UNTERGANG. He certainly is one of the better German directors. Well, the combination of a top director, a top guest actor and an already great show made this one a special episode.
