All in, or originally; Fantasten, is about a middle aged man losing totally control. Claus is a seemingly successful carsales man with a nice flat, but also a compulsive gambler loving russian roulette and all kinds of gambling. So compulsive that he borrows money by some Chinese gangsters. But things gets worse when he gets his 19 year old son Silas mixed up in considerable gambling debts to criminals.
Dejan Cukic does a very good job in depicting the downfall of a man which is like most, seemingly having control, being some kind of world champion, but emotionally is quite disturbed in some kind of way, lacking important relations. He is close to taking his own life when his son suddenly appears, but things might have gone too far when this happens. When he introduces his son to his gambling friends everything escalates out of control.
The film is about losing control, and dragging someone with you in the downfall.
Well played and keeps tension, though it's far from any masterpiece. Well worth your time.
