Robert  Hültner - The Godmother


Munich, 1924: a prostitute is found murdered. Paul Kajetan, sacked from the police for insubordination, begins investigating on his own account. The case preys on his mind, for not long ago he had fallen head over heels in love with the young woman himself. The trail leads first to a music-hall proprietor of dubious reputation. Kajetan is soon drawn into a dangerous morass involving corruption and gun-running. Step by step, he finally approaches a shocking family history, and in the process comes upon a terrible truth.
