Atom User Reviews
Frehling is excellent as a rigid do-gooder who thinks he understands everything and then comes up against crimes that shake his sense of the universe. His fresh fierceness is nicely balanced by Voss, who says little but radiates wisdom.
It’s one of the most important and revelatory films of the year.
The film deftly explores the story's complex moral issues from several sides.
