Storyline

Konrad von Seidlitz is a young yuppie lawyer currently celebrating his engagement with Cornelia, daughter of minister of justice Volkerts. As a public relations gag, he hasn't paid his parking fines for two years and now insists on being sentenced to jail for two weeks as punishment. Using his knowledge as a lawyer he makes the best out of his visit in jail still working, still in a splendid mood and not adapting to any rule. Probably a good way to get the desired public attention, but also a good way to make enemies inside the jail-house. One day before Konrad is to be released his booth is searched and two hundred grams of cocaine are found. That's a serious problem even for a brilliant lawyer like Konrad and even if you're innocent. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

19 August 1999 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

Praised by some critics as one of the most important movies of the commercial German cinema of the 90ies, because for a change it wasn't a romantic comedy, TV routine Roland Suso Richters (DAGOBERT) second work as a feature film director after KOLP (1984) failed to attract audiences, though for a German production this hard-hitting, well-cast Crime Thriller about a arrogant lawyer who goes to jail, because he refuses to pay fines for false parking, for 14 days to make himself famous and because of a intrigue ends up being imprisoned for several years, is a fairly impressive, though uneven piece of work.
