At the end, when Benjamin performs his magic trick, you can see a dark clothed person with a clown mask in the background. It's a reference to the movie "Fight Club". See more »
The film takes place mainly in Berlin and shows a break-in to the BND. While the BND has offices in Berlin and a new headquarters building is nearing completion, at the time of release the headquarters (with main IT departments) was still located in Pullach (near Munich). See more »

It's not often that you get a genre movie in Germany. And even less times the result is any good. Fortunately they did get it this time. The lead actor has not the strength to pull it off completely (if you have watched a lot of thrillers, you know where this is heading and it makes no sense at all, even with explanations). But overall the acting is more than fine by the whole cast.
Making a thriller out of hacking is not an easy task. But visually the movie did find a way to give us an in to chat rooms (hidden and otherwise), with a very clever trick. It wouldn't be the same just seeing people type things on a keyboard. There are other things that work out nicely too. I was pleasantly surprised, even if I felt that the movie tried to be a bit too clever for its own good at the end. Give us more of that please
