Powerful psycho-thriller from Germany
29 November 2017 | by achimmichalkeSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and was pleasantly surprised. 'Four Hands' is a nice piece of well-made cinema, riveting, gripping and surprising. I wouldn't consider myself a genre-aficionado but I'm always open for a thriller or crime-film that surpasses the norm. This film avoids the standard formula in that it tells a genuine, uncompromising story, while it nods elegantly to other movies of the same vein without copying them. There are familiar motives and characterizations the audience will recognize and relate to: a revenge plot, existential fear, identity conflict, a whodunit--though writer/director Oliver Kienle knows how to bend expectations while telling a compelling story. Every other scene there's a nice twist or innovative idea that keeps the engine running and the audience on the edge of their seats. Although 'Four Hands' doesn't reinvent the wheel it is without question one of the best films I saw in a while.
