One day Rocco and Nuri are killed by a nail bomb, which was deposited in front of the office. This has shredded everything. Because her husband was in prison for drug possession, the police investigated in the red light district. The investigators do not see that the tracks point in a completely different direction. Then they happen to be the real killers on the net. The main suspects are the neo-Nazi spouses André (Ulrich Brandhoff) and Edda Möller (Hanna Hilsdorf).

bitter
19 January 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The theme is more than delicate. The story is solide constructed. And Diane Kruger gives more than a good work. A German woman, her Turkish husband, their son.. An a Nazi couple. A murder. A trial. And a revenge. More important - the nuances defining the aspects of tragedy. A good director, using in fine manner , his inspiration and skills. The result - an admirable work. As inspired use of a plot who is so familiar to action films, in a wise manner.
