Very different to what German TV usually offers
Stylish, beautiful and real character arches - I love this series! Matschke embodies T to a point where even his tiniest movements are almost like a machine in the fantastic close-ups which there are many of. He is truly brilliant, versatile and makes this difficult role look so effortless - he was made for this character and his acting is particularly impressive to me after first discovering Matschke in comedy. I guess that that makes him so perfect for this serious part. Jahn, the director, writer AND cinematographer is a movie director through and through and no doubt the most unusual, fun and talented director I know. He's a genius with all these skills on that level. And it seeps through in every scene that he has a great sense of humor, as well as true love and passion for what he is doing... something that directors can lose after a strong 20 year career in Germany - I can't wait to watch what he is up to next and I hope to see him do more English movies again! He surely changed the world for Germans with his classic "Knockin' on heavens door" - glad to see a movie director who has not lost his knack for big screen storytelling while doing TV formats - his cinematography alone blows my mind. Small screen, big screen - can't wait to watch more. I hope that Matschke and him get some TV awards for Professor T. They deserve it.
