A candidate in a game show is hunted by three men. He will get a Million DMark, if he survives for a week; the hunters will get the money, if they can kill the candidate. The audience of the show is watching the transmissions of twenty camera teams filming the hunt. The showmaster appeals to the TV-viewers to help either the candidate or the hunters, whomever they want. Written by Mirko Thiessen <mirko.thiessen@arcor.de>

The real Truman Show
28 January 2021 | by kiessigianSee all my reviews

Great film and above all very exciting. Camera always calm and no wobble. Not much talk besides the moderator. Music wasn't special, but the movie is just a TV movie and that's why it's great. In the end I also liked the one shot where Lotz was shocked and lay on the stretcher at the end, holding the one million EUR envelope. You can see or understand the message of the film from this.
