Known as Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street, I am having a hard time understanding if this is or is not part of a long running German police drama known as Tatort. The film certainly has the look and feel of television. Mostly, the production feels rushed, with vast amounts of exposition being given in voice-overs. There are a few striking angles and some visually exciting shots, but the espionage and blackmail plot is extremely confusing and the characters are never consistent.
Still there is that one scene that makes it worth it, not because it is great, but simply because it is just insane.
