A portrait of a money launderer
12 September 2019 | by chong_anSee all my reviews

As a young man, Brause is working for a foreign exchange firm when his boss introduces him to the shady side of business - spiriting money out of the country to Swiss banks. Eventually he marries his boss's daughter - part of the film deals with his family life. He starts making deals of his own, working for criminals, crooked politicians, and anyone with suitcases of money, to launder their money or move it overseas. However, being a bank with no legal protection has its own set of problems, as he finds out.

This is an interesting portrait, though I was surprised that, given the title, there was no dealings with black market currency exchanges. I could follow most of the rouges' gallery fairly well. However, I just could not identify with, or cheer for, the main character. Hence the rating runs a point below what I would otherwise have given it.
