Suspensful German drama-thriller about people on board a boat
8 February 2001 | by bengt_historiskaSee all my reviews

Suspenseful German drama-thriller about people on board a boat.Good acting from contemporary actors and a good reminder of how great a director Helmut Käutner really was.Notice the surprise ending which beats most of the unexpected endings I´ve ever seen.
