Surprisingly good thriller, Made in Germany
1 December 2017 | by siliepeterSee all my reviews

I saw this film as a recommendation of a friend and I am glad he did so. At first I was hesitant, because German films are mostly not my cup of tea. This one is different: It is a dark, atmospheric, effective piece of cinema, more reminiscent of Danish or Swedish crime thrillers or American Independent Cinema. The direction is on point, the performances remarkable (didn't know the lead-actresses before, now I do!), the story is simple but captivating, here and there a little twisted, without giving too much away. Especially the mood and the images stayed in my mind, after I left the screening. I'd definitely watch it again!
