The best film ever made about the economic and psychological fallout in post-'reunification' East Germany, served up in the guise of a subversive, fast-paced, cleverly constructed crime investigation. When the city of Leipzig is threatened by a €20million extortion scheme, an unconventional police commissioner follows the trail to a rather unusual hamlet and a hushed-up case from his own East German past.
