I saw a special about the special effects which would feature in this episode of Tatort (crime scene). That special made me watch this show. Ironically the special effects were the worst part of the episode. The direction, the actors, the plot, everything else was so good. The characters were convincing and well portrayed by their actors. And although I liked all the actors - Ken Duken is always good - Kurtulus deserves a special mention. He really is an interesting leading man. He never overacted, he never fell out of his role, and the dialogue coming out of his mouth never felt stupid. So oft, German actors cannot speak their dialogue convincingly, often because the dialogue is stupid. Here, Kurtulus nails it completely, everything he is given, he pulls off. They should give him roles in features. Given the fact that the conflict between Christians and Jews and Muslims will or could increase in the future, so will/ could the demand for Arab (looking) actors. Well, here is one who is really good. I, for my part, will watch his future work.
