The scenario:

Raffkes and junkies, united in greed and fear.

After the murder of an asset manager, the team around Faber (Jörg Hartmann) and Bönisch (Anna Schudt) in an investment company that drove its pig-rich customers into completely unfounded fund products.

The deeper the commissioners go into the case, the more labyrinthine it becomes.

Also involved is a dealer (Sascha Gersak) who is addicted to heroin himself and who injects his poison around the millionaires.

When the dealer meets Faber's and Bönisch's colleague Pawlak (Rick Okon), he immediately recognizes the ex-junkie and tries to exploit him for himself.

The highlight:

Some hang on the needle, the other on the Dax - in this nested film noir "crime scene" it is not always clear how one relates to the other.

But to be honest - has anyone ever fully understood the noir classic "Dead sleep tight" with Humphrey Bogart?

The unleashed panic thriller by Sönke Lars Neuwöhner (book) and Martin Eigler (book and direction) looks like a mixture of "Dead sleep tight" and "Trainspotting" - including noise-related logic holes.

The picture:

Faber makes the Buddha.

Great scene: a fucked up banker meditates on happiness - and when he opens his eyes, the choleric Asi Faber is sitting cross-legged in front of him.

The dialogue:

The Commissioner and Commissioner talk to a banker about how extreme wealth changes people.

Banker: "Anyone who directs their entire life according to how they amass as much money as possible - is clear that panic grips them that someone outside can take it away from them again."

Commissioner: "Because you only get rich if you take something away from others?"

Banker: »Yes, you don't get richer without others getting poorer.

Those who look for happiness in money are living wrong.

He lives in fear. "

The song:

"Perfect Day" by Lou Reed.

The junkie Reed's heroin ballad is on when Pawlak meets his missing drug-addicted ex-wife at the dealer's club.

The two dance intimately together - this is what the illusion of happiness sounds like when the needle has done its job.

The review:

7 out of 10 points.

The full boom of addiction and madness: Despite the shaky plot, a crazy »crime scene« trip.
