I really enjoyed the movie. Jan Josef Liefers is doing a fantastic job by playing Wastl Kronbach who figured out the illegal business of his wife. This exposure is putting some powerful persons into a bad spot. Therefore, they decide with their network of corrupt figures to get him into a psychiatric facility. The movie underlines the influence of power to "powerless" persons. At some point when Wastls house got sold they might even ruin him mentally. But Wastle never stops fighting and after 10 years imprisoned he is finally free again.
The only drawbacks of this movie are that is not completely clear what happens to Wastle and everybody else who has his finger in the pie afterwards. Also it would be nicer if one could have a closer look into the daily procedure of the psychiatric.
