A straight-up crime film
13 March 2010 | by hudsonwaSee all my reviews

Im Schatten is a work of classicism – a straight-up crime film juxtaposing the mechanics of a career outside the law with clear-eyed views of industrial Berlin.

The protagonist, Trojan (Mišel Matičević), is a professional who always acts purposefully, with control and precision. An effective, propulsive score describes a life of constant motion; and photography of fluorescent interiors (shot with a Red camera) perfectly captures a world where night always reigns.

Real crime, we are reminded, is seldom a solo act. Like any other human endeavor, crime is a collaborative business where you need confidence in your colleagues and careful analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
