Fair Remake
This is a fair remake of a grand old movie, "It Happened in Broad Daylight" (1958) or "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" in German.

The story is almost the same, but the movie is much more modern, of course. It has some Hollywood-like cliches that don't suit the original.

If you like detective stories of that kind you might enjoy it, but if you understand just a few words in German I'd always suggest to watch the original old movie with German cult-actor Heinz Ruehmann.
