Eric's seemingly happy world comes to an abrupt end when a weird stranger, Henry, forces his way into his life. His annoying, cynical way of doing things pushes Eric to the brink of madness. But when more shady characters surface threatening to do him serious harm if he doesn't join in their dirty business, his life is destined to go right off the rails. Backed into a corner and with no way out, Eric has no choice but to rely on Henry. But can he be trusted? Written by lament

Acting up
10 November 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Story wise we do not get served something we might not have seen before (can't speak for everyone, but if you have seen a couple of thrillers, chances are, the plot is not new to you). But acting wise, we do get more than a treat. It's two of the best known actors finally together. German actors that is and only if you consider their acting skills that is of course.

We have a very decent effort to bring those two together, though the initial cat and mouse does not make any sense, especially considering the the insistence of the "second" character not wanting to go away after that. There is a lot of foreshadowing and you will be able to see where this is headed. The confrontation towards the end is nicely done, although this has some flaws too (again makes no sense). But the very end, is very good and gives us one final great moment ...
