"Papst-Attentat" is one of the best German movies I have watched on TV for many, many years! Everything in this movie is well done: the screenplay is fabulous, the directing simply perfect! Suspense and surprise! The action scenes are great and high class, you are gripped by the emotions, especially Heiner Lauterbach: he does not play the killer, he IS the killer. Thrilling!!! Hollywood could not do it better! I am very impressed by the production value and the cast as well. Director Rainer Matsutani did a great job. To me he is one of the best directors in Germany and one of the most remarkable talents in the film business. It is tricky and certainly not easy telling and staging "action" in Germany because the surroundings mostly are not suitable for realizing big action scenes. However Rainer Matsutani is able to make us forget about this. And I am very glad to hear that the movie is available on DVD (Director's Cut!), it is a must-have for everyone who loves complex suspense and intelligent entertainment.
