(German and Polish dialogue)
First theatrical feature by Cologne-based TV director Kaspar Heidelbach is an undemanding mystery-thriller, set in Warsaw, that should slip quietly into latenight Eurotube skeds as a dubbed item.
Womanizing Dortmund insurance agent Tom (Klaus J. Behrendt) gets a message to help his psychotic brother, Piet (Juergen Vogel), in Poland, where he’s hiding out from the local mob after double-crossing them on a stolen auto deal. Plot mainly concerns Tom tracking him down, in between being hassled by the police, plus sack time with Piet’s sexy g.f., Alina (Clotilde Courau).
Action quotient is low, and script reads like a Cold War spy story update. Performances are OK, and technically pic is pro.
