Rarely has a made-for-TV production by one of Germany's most prolific directors been met with such unanimous enthusiasm from the media, audiences and arthouse programmers alike. We will be premiering Dominik Graf‘s 10-part Berlin thriller on love, death, and the Russian mafia over three suspenseful nights in our series GOETHE FILMS @ TIFF Bell Lightbox in May.
"Addictive." (Stern magazine)
“The shooting of the film was a disaster -- the result is a masterpiece.”
“Violence and poetry have rarely been so close as in this fantastic production.”
"Has there been a better German crime series in recent years? We can’t think of one." (TV Movie)
“A milestone in German TV history.” (Die Zeit)
“A great epic, with a flood of stories that keep you rooted to your seat.”
“A daring story about duty and guilt --but above all about the difficulty of positioning oneself as an individual in a world where one is defined by oneʼs origins.”
(Christoph Terhechte, head programmer at the Berlinale)
Don't miss your one and only chance to see our 3-part presentation of In the Face of Crime at GOETHE FILMS @ TIFF Bell Lightbox May 7, 10 and 14.
