Labyrinth of Lies

"The striking camerawork all suggest Ricciarelli is someone who, in association with his collaborators, meticulously prepares his shots for maximum visual or emotional impact."
- Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
"An intelligent and arresting fact-based drama that plays like a more streamlined version of the high-minded, blunt-spoken, socially conscious “prestige pictures” made by Stanley Kramer"
- Joe Leydon, Variety

Synopsis

Frankfurt 1958: nobody wants to look back to the time of the National Socialist regime. Young public prosecutor Johann Radmann comes across some documents that help initiate the trial against some members of the SS who served in Auschwitz. But both the horrors of the past and the hostility shown towards his work bring Johann close to a meltdown. It is nearly impossible for him to find his way through this maze; everybody seems to have been involved or guilty.
