In the final analysis, it all comes down to guilt, different shades of guilt that one assumes in a single moment of thoughtlessness or in months of premeditated planning. Defence Attorney Friedrich Knonberg knows he must tip legal scales of justice in favour of his client for crimes that are never black and white and what they may seem.Written by
Unbelievably slow and boring with no real endings for the episodes
It's difficult to know who the intended audience for this type of series might be. The episodes are meant to be very "noir" and cerebral but are unbelievably slow moving, boring, and with no satisfactory ending. After each episode, the viewer is forced to ask, "What was that all about?" It is very Germanic in approach, simple ideas made to something that is unbelievably complex to fill the time slot for each episode. This is the type of series that one cannot "binge watch" but use more as fillers when there is nothing else to watch. Especially annoying is the cinematography that has objects mentioned in the dialog, falling through the frame of action. So, if the term "letter" is mentioned, one sees a letter falling like a snowflake through the movie frame.....all very distracting and disconcerting! Overall, this is a real "snoozefest" with each episode having 100 times the potency of a very strong sleeping pill!
