SUPERB in every way!!!
16 November 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Since I don't know enough about all political issues surrounding the background of this story (like discussed in reviews before me), all I can have an opinion about is the movie I saw - and this European piece of film just got my jaw dropping! I really have to admit: in terms of lighting, acting, locations or music this is the most ambitious detective flick with film noir elements I have ever encountered! The camera work is pure eye candy, the acting all the way believable, the efforts in shooting every take as detailed - or should I say - as "perfect" as possible is just breathtaking! I even caught myself once or twice forgetting to pay attention because I was often asking myself "how in gods name did they pull all this off??"

My deepest respect to the creative staff behind this project! This is a HUGE movie made in Europe and I can recommend it to everyone who loves believable stories combined with highly aesthetic imagery and sound.
