Film tells a mystery story about a man who lost his memory and tries to resume his past. His father and his wife got murdered and he is now looking for the murderer. Clues lead to "Dingus" but who is Dingus? Klaus Kinski is one of the 2 leads and he is enigmatic as usual. Overall the story is completely unconvincing, many people must have known Luke's past but no one tells. All characters do their best to add to the mystery. There is also a strange character shift from bad to good in Luke and the opening with the vultures(obviously archive footage) is never explained. Only recommendable for die hard fans of the subgenre and Klaus Kinski.
