Julian, the German, Yassin, the Turk, and Addi, the African, have the same mother but different fathers. When they learn about each others existence they go on a road trip together in search for their common roots.
Wanted for a long time, serial killer Gabriel Engel gets arrested in a spectacular police raid. Small town cop Michael Martens travels to the big city to interrogate him and finds out more then he is looking for.
Christian von Aster,
This is based on a real story, though as always I'm sure they took some liberties with the truth to create more tension or just the right amount of it. The police is not only portrayed as incompetent, but also as crazy. Our heroes are insane too (to a certain level) and therefor it's tough to really root for someone.
The Banklady gets our sympathies to a degree and there are some moments where we almost lose our faith in her, where they give her a line to pull as back in. The performances are really good, Ken Duken has one of the toughest jobs to pull off (it's a fine line, though at the end even he's not able to keep it in line, up to that point, great job though). It's a decent movie, that ticks off the right boxes with a twist towards the end that's sort of unbelievable to say the least
