Enemies (Ferdinand von Schirach: Feinde – Das Geständnis) (Germany)
From acclaimed German author Ferdinand von Schirach comes this high-concept, two-part crime drama that is told from two different perspectives. One follows police inspector Peter Nadler (Bjarne Mädel, Crime Scene Cleaner), the other follows defense attorney, Konrad Biegler (Oscar® nominee Klaus Maria Brandauer, Out of Africa).
Following the kidnapping of a wealthy family’s daughter and demand for a ransom, it’s up to veteran investigator Peter Nadler (Mädel) to find the girl quickly and bring her home safely. There’s only circumstantial evidence pointing to a suspect, yet Nadler’s intuition and experience tell him he has his guy. But the suspect isn’t talking and the clock is ticking, so Nadler decides to take the law into his own hands. Defense attorney Konrad Biegler (Brandauer) thinks Nadler overstepped his bounds and went too far, and sets about turning the tables on the case to save his client.
