basically any detective story is a game between authors and audience: because the stimulus is all the greater, the better we are able to do on the other is misleading. Popular the pattern with the two seemingly completely independent of each other crimes that turn out to be eventually as two sides of the same coin; or, for example, to do in rarer cases, actually nothing.
The authors Jan Cronauer and Matthias cloth man have found for the Swiss "crime scene" with a "take it or leave it" is a third variant. The Film begins with two parallel-told storylines: In Lucerne, the body of a Professor is found. At the same time, an armed man is on the way to Switzerland; his goal of a luxurious property. The two women in the house, he takes as a hostage.
Together, the three are now waiting for Anton Seematter, the breadwinner of the family. But suddenly the homicide stands in front of the door, because Seematters car was last night at the crime scene in Lucerne. Thus, a half-hour, which cancel other thrillers for the last few minutes begins after the Finale.
The thrillers, the Swiss Director Andreas Senn are always worth seeing. The compressed action remains manageable, especially since it is happening largely within the home and in a night. But it is also the tension of the film is the result. Because "eat or die" game over long distances to a chamber, the actors are all the more important, and in this respect, there is nothing wrong with that.
Excellent, the two counterparties are busy: Mišel Matičević plays the intruder, Mike Liebknecht, the more and more the tragic figure of the film. House, Mr. Seematter is the managing Director of a large Swiss company; he took over the company, in which the hostage-taker works. Capitalists are in the television film automatically Evil, but Roland Koch, the feat succeeds, the Manager is increasingly sympathetic to appear.
Idle investigators, agile camera
For the first amazement of the script, as the boss of the group increases, the demand of the hostage-taker. Liebknecht demanded the immediate payment of over a half a Million Euro. That would be the wage that would be missed in the next twenty years. Seematter notes that he has not included the Inflation, and increases the amount accordingly. After a scuffle the two opposing men drink a beer and You.
scenes like this are part of a clever dramaturgy. "Sink or swim" remains consistently compelling Thriller, which is also due to the agile camera work; the person in charge of Philipp Sichler has done for Senn in the process of "Bella Block" is a first-class job. Parallel to the hostage-taking, the authors ensure that the murder of the University Professor would not be forgotten.
The investigative team Flückiger and Ritschard (Stefan Gubser, Delia Mayer) has to do in the face of the human constellation a lot; hardly a meeting in the house of Seematter, you will be tied up. Finally, the situation comes to a head after several escape attempts, it comes to other death cases. The story ends thanks to a great gesture by the Commissioner with a thick lump in my throat.More about
