Breathtaking.
7 August 2007 | by igeschSee all my reviews

Ulrike Folkerts and Barbara Rudnik at their best. At last, U.Folkerts playing something different than just the TATORT- Kommissar. Outstanding performance of both main actresses. The plot is nail-bitingly exciting, very realistic, too. I just wish they would publish the film on DVD. Then I would be able to watch it more often and to analyze it more properly. It was on TV last night (6th August 2007), but unfortunately I missed it and only saw the second half. The ZDF may broadcast the film again; they seem to do so every 2 years. This comment may not be of great help for you, but mostly I want to express how very much I like the film, especially because of the two female protagonists.
