A 100-year old detective story by Karl May, filmed in East Germany
The story is about a smuggling gang in the German Ore mountains, set around 1880. It is an adventure movie with a social (or socialist?) touch, because it was filmed in the German Democratic Republic in 1986. When you look twice the big surprise comes: the author is Karl May, the inventor of Winnetou, Old Shatterhand, Kara ben Nemsi and many more.
Have a look when it appears on TV the next time, whenever this will be.
