Fremder Feind
3 July 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

That was the title the movie played at Netflix. And it is a decent effort into the mind of a troubled man. And a movie that goes back and forth. It all sort of makes sense in the end, the pacing and the switching paths (or rather "revisiting" the past) may be annoying to some.

But if you bring patience there is a rewarding journey to be had. The acting is good and there are things to discover about human behaviour and interactions in general. Drama with a sort of highlight towards the end, that gets a bit spoiled in the description of Netflix
