Touching and thrilling
24 April 2019 | by kostehrenbergSee all my reviews

Starting like a better TV crime movie, The Collini Case turns suddenly into one of the best drama films I have seen for a long time. A very emotional and also shocking movie and yes, real good cinema from Germany. I hope for a nomination for the oscar for the international feature film.

Don't forget tissues, and please note that the movie has some (necessarily) heavy scenes.
