North American Premiere

Collini Case

Directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner

Germany | 123 minutes | 2019

German, Italian, Latin with English subtitles

Courtroom drama meets political thriller worthy of John Grisham in this explosive, spellbinding story about a young lawyer who comes across one of the biggest judicial scandals in German history and a truth that nobody wants to face. Fabrizio Collini (legendary Italian actor Franco Nero) is recently retired. He’s a quiet, unassuming man with no indication that he’s capable of hurting anyone. And yet, he brutally murders a prominent industrialist in one of Berlin’s most exclusive hotels. Collini ends up in the charge of Caspar Leinen, a rookie defense lawyer eager to launch his career with a not-guilty verdict. Complications soon arise when Collini admits to the murder, but refuses to give his motive, much less speak to anyone. As Leinen searches for clues, he discovers a personal connection to the victim and unearths a terrible truth at the heart of Germany’s legal system that stretches back to the aftermath of Nazi Germany. But how much is he willing to sacrifice to expose the truth?
