Einmal den Autoren Kiel-holen, bitte!
20 October 2008 | by (Kassel, Germany) – See all my reviews

( = "Once keelhauling for the author, please!")

Zu „Tatort: Borowski und die einsamen Herzen" („Crimescene: Borowski and the lonesome hearts") first aired Sunday, October 12th 2008, 0815pm.

"I feel like in a bad film," the annoyed Sergeant Borowski (Axel Milberg) quarrels halfway through the story, set in the German "tatort-city of Kiel. Yeah. Right. It IS a movie, as the passionate moviefan among the viewers has already realized after five minutes this flick as a blatant rippoff from "Sea Of Love" (1989).

Borowski's line cited here comes right after the restaurant dating-marathon, a scene which is cloned 1:1 from the Al Pacino-movie. What's this supposed to mean? Running out of good ideas?

Among my friends, the majority like the Borowski-episodes less than the other "tatort"-units. I actually do like the Borowski-films, because of Axel Milberg's play, his Borowski (a divorced and single-educating father of a freshly pubertizing girl) is truly the most average guy you can think of, which makes his interpretation one of the most "uncool" and therefor realistic of all "tatort"-cops to me. Mil-berg can work pretty well with his mimic usually with the least of effort.

But this episode didn't do him any good. Not only that it was a borrowed plot, it was also poorly done.

At least there was a lot to see from Kiel, which is a nice city at the German east-sea-coast, close to the Danish border. The location alone should bear enough potential for terrific stories, due to her close range to the baltic sea and Scandinavia (read some Mankell-thrillers or watch "Forbrydelsen", Dansk 2007, to know how it should be). Okay, let's call it a day and wait for the next Borowski...

(edit from nov. 8th: Ah, Axel Milberg lately revealed that Mankell would write 2 scripts for the Kiel-"tatort"; I look forward to those ;o))

Oh and please don't title "tatort"-films with that "Borowski and the..."-pattern anymore as done over years with the "Bienzle"-episodes from Stuttgart. It gets boring and more boring and lacks any dramatical ambition. Is there a new bourgeois 'Maigret'-fever on the rise or what?

And for God's sake let Borowski and his precinct-psychologist Frieda Jung (Maren Eggert) have their romance at last, they both hesitated long enough now! Those scenes were Borowski daydreams about her while listening to her were the only funny moments here.
