Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The premise of this German thriller is that the Mafiosi have influence in every major area of life, and that they are secretly being directed by important Nazis, who have not ceased being influential; their influence has gone underground. The film is based on a novel by Johannes Mario Simmel. Ritchie and Werner are two brothers in love with the same woman, and they are on both sides of this issue. Werner does the bidding of the mob. On the other hand, Ritchie, a nightclub owner, is just trying to mind his own business. When the brothers' rivalry heats up, Ritchie must fight a lone battle against the whole of the shadowy underworld, but he has just the weapon he needs: proof of the Nazi's continued involvement in world affairs.
