"A Perfect Crime" offers not only an interesting murder case through well directed interviews, great structure and good pacing, but also gives a deep insight of the political climate and it's effect on the economical structure and peoples life in East Germany after the fall of the DDR. It engages the viewer by encouraging to draw your own conclusion of the murder through interviewing several people with diffrent perspectives, all making good cases for their perception of the events that took place. It's neatly edited and looks great most of the time. The only downsides of the documentary are small inconsistencies of the reconstructed scenes, where in some scenes there is cleary put effort into making it look authentic, but sometimes is just clearly taking place in the modern time. However this is quickly overshadowed as it is just a minor flaw that doesn't hinder the viewer in any way of enjoying the documentary. All in all it is more than just a murder case, but an important timepiece of german history.
