Storyline

'Die you pig!'. The words are emblazoned on the wall of the home of school principal Höpfl for all the people of the village to see. And soon after, this very man is found lying dead as a doornail on the train tracks! Franz Eberhofer, the local policeman in the sleepy Lower Bavarian province of Niederkaltenkirchen, suspects murder. And the prospect is one that does not entirely displease him, as this backwoods offers very little excitement other than the fantastic meals with his cooking-obsessed Grandma or the constant stress with his Beatles-loving Dad. He is supported by Rudi Birkenberger, now a department store detective but previously with Franz in the Munich detective squad until both were suspended. The Höpfl case gets even more tangled when a second corpse is found, that of a drug addict hustler that Höpfl had been in contact with. As well as this, Franz must cope with the fact that his Susi is having an affair and he reckons the lover is the Thai offspring of his estranged ... Written by Constantin Television

There's no new sheriff in town
12 August 2013 | by Karl SelfSee all my reviews

I was amazed by how good this movie was. I more or less walked into the cinema because I needed some distraction, and it seemed like the best thing on that evening. I haven't read the book and didn't know anything beforehand.

Director Ed Herzog hasn't many feature movies to his name and has mostly directed TV features, but it shows in a good way. The movie is unpretentious and understated, but in a good way, and every scene hits home. The actors bring out the most interesting angle of their characters. The movie is funny when it's supposed to be, there is suspense when there is supposed to be suspense, and unrequited romance when ... you get the point. The affluent pastoral boredom of Nether Bavaria and the Munich suburbs, with its immaculately kept but sanitized village squares, is well observed and accurately portrayed. The story is true-to-life and adequately gritty, but there is also a modicum of screen magic and entertainment -- of course, you won't find any cops complementing their uniforms with blue jeans and a casual T-shirt even in the farthest necks of the wood in Bavaria, but being the deadbeat cop of a boondock village never felt so cool before.
