The film is worth seeing. But there are, besides some bad acting and some artificial, horribly written dialogues, particularly two things I dislike (but unfortunately often find in German productions): the insufficient sound design and the nonreflective use of music.
In principle a good, intriguing thriller, with nice paced shots. But horrible sound: whenever the actors speak there is loud background noise or music. Clearly a stylistic gag by the director, but makes understanding very difficult. Would profit by subtitles.
