Storyline

After serving a life sentence in prison, Becker has been released. All he wants now is to start a new life and to finally leave the terrible crime that he committed in the past behind. Becker has found a job, he finds a friend and with the cleaning woman Rita, he even finds a woman who is attracted to him. One day, however, the widower Dahlmann stands before him, the man whose wife and child he shot 18 years ago during a fatal burglary. Apparently, Dahlmann knows everything about the ex-convict and his new life, and he starts following him. Becker tries everything to conciliate the stalker, he begs him to leave him in peace. But Dahlmann cannot accept Becker's atonement - he wants revenge. And Becker sees only one way to protect the people who are dear to him. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Chipped dignity
6 April 2019 | by ferdinand1932See all my reviews

Anyone familiar with Ken Loach's films will see great similarities here. It is the story of a man who made a grievous error and is paying for it, forever. A simple story of perseverance with a small glimmer of hope in a dreary and dismal town.

The film works due to the casting and the way the director can extract a subtle performance from simple material. The cast here is excellent, and like Loach's casts over the years, give a chipped dignity to the less than glorious lives they have. Kurth as the protagonist is a strong presence. His bulk and disheveled plainness is authentic but it's his ability to suggest emotional motive which holds attention.

He couldn't work alone and the cast with him, especially Striebeck, is effective. Overall the writing is quite good, though perfunctory in the style of this genre, but the ending was not quite as well realized as some alternatives might have offered if examined.
