Apparently realistic and versatile, yet with several flaws for them aware of Russia(ns)
18 June 2016 | by (Estonia/Tallinn) – See all my reviews

The series in question has brought forth a lot of ambivalent thoughts and feelings for me. On the one hand, its course of events and many actors (particularly Max Riemelt as Marek Gorsky, Alina Levshin as Jelena, Mark Ivanir as Andrej) met my eye from the first episode, but many clichés about Russians and their comprehensions (vodka, noisy parties, corruption), as well as a lot of broken Russian uttered made the watching complex at times.

Moreover, I felt sometimes that some scenes became too scattered and/or were intended to fill out the total length, but still... I could still imagine that for general audience, for them not knowing Russian and without direct contacts with Russia and its people, Im Angesicht des Verbrechens is a captivating and skilfully accomplished creation about the life in contemporary Berlin where the diversity accompanied by immigrants and tourists is not always a benefit, when "old" locals have to cope with new type of business and management methods. The thrill is there, the love is there, the violence is there, and all this was masterfully combined into a story with several twists and turns, with comic and tragic elements included.

So, despite the shortcomings mentioned above, I still give 8 points, i.e. trying to "forget" my background and time of youth, confirming that I have become a full Westerner... :)
