On 21. September 2013, telecommunications satellite APV-1312 belonging to French media group CanalDouble crashes into the Brandenburg Gate, cutting a trail of destruction as far as the Reichstag. 56 delegates die. Thirteen minutes later, all around the world more and more satellites plummet to earth. Communications, as we have known them, are collapsing everywhere. West of Geneva. At the largest research laboratory in the world, with a budget of one billion dollars, an experiment has failed that is going to throw the whole world off its hinges. Scientists from 80 nations have simulated the Big Bang with the so-called 'God Machine', the world's greatest particle accelerator, and thereby created a Black Hole. Reaching Geneva turns into a tour de force for our heroes, through a country that like its neighbors is in a state of total emergency, but equally into a time of human encounters.

Really painful to watch. For starters the script is just bad. The story far fetched (which can be absolutely Okay in any disaster picture) but here the script fails. More the director can't save the bad script, since he isn't too good either. There is one scene - no spoiler - where Yvonne Catterfeld slaps a teenager. It looks so dumb.... Camera- and production design are very decent for a TV movie of that scale, but can't help saving the mess of a badly directed bad script. To top it, production cost was around 8 Million . They should have spend it on a some better writers. What a dud.
Various story lines are interwoven into a "hero" story. There is the nurse who outgrows herself in the disaster (uhhaa, Christine Neubauer in a hard to top role). The German Chancellor has his agenda, but the main "heroes" Christiane Paul and - I forgot his name - race from Berlin to Switzerland to save Germany from more collapses. THe race is so dumb, so unreal.
Best part are a couple of farm workers somewhere in Brandenburg. All women, and each and everyone looks like a model out of a Heidi Klum casting show. What was that please???
