verdict
Often about as thrilling as a political debriefing. Hoffman is always reliable but this one takes patience. It is ultimately worthwhile.
genre Thriller
synopsis When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?
