Berlin in the early 1990s: Hans-Georg Dahlmann is making a
lot of enemies as head of the agency charged with
privatizing eastern Germany's formerly state-owned
businesses. His newly hired assistant, Sandra Wellmann, is
one of these enemies. She has been planted in the agency
by the RAF terrorist organization to spy on Dahlmann. When
the head of a bank is murdered, the Federal Criminal
Police Office starts to consider who might be next. As
Wellmann and Dahlmann come to trust each other, the
terrorist's mission is redefined. This two-part TV movie
portrays the uncertainty and latent violence in a society
undergoing seismic change. Cast: Petra Schmidt-Schaller,
Jenny Schily, Maximilian Brückner, Ulrich Tukur, Stefanie
Stappenbeck and many more. Director: Miguel Alexandre.

Brückner on his Arctic Experience: "The funny thing
is, in the beginning I thought Iina Kuustonen was the
main actress and I was the main actor. Now I realise the
landscape is the third main character in this series,
and it's unbelievable. We were shooting yesterday and
the wind was blowing like hell. You wanted to speak but
your mouth was full of wind. It's a real challenge.
There was one point where I was standing with Iina in
front of me, and the wind was so hard that we both
welled up in the scene, but it was natural. It's far
from a perfect studio-made storm."
