Rare good German movie
10 September 2015 | by kzsgamesSee all my reviews

Really liked the movie due to the tension it brings all the movie long. As the other reviewer this got, as the most good German crime movies, no real white or black, more like a grey.

really makes you think (or even sad) in the end, because you don't know what do think of it now. For me this movie went really deep, don't know why.

characters also designed pretty good, felt a lot like on of the SEK (SWAT)-officers, hard to decide what to do or what not to do, you really good to "decide" between your friends/revenge/honor and the law you should stand for, exactly this conflict is why i liked the movie so much
