Storyline

Konrad von Seidlitz is a young yuppie lawyer currently celebrating his engagement with Cornelia, daughter of minister of justice Volkerts. As a public relations gag, he hasn't paid his parking fines for two years and now insists on being sentenced to jail for two weeks as punishment. Using his knowledge as a lawyer he makes the best out of his visit in jail still working, still in a splendid mood and not adapting to any rule. Probably a good way to get the desired public attention, but also a good way to make enemies inside the jail-house. One day before Konrad is to be released his booth is searched and two hundred grams of cocaine are found. That's a serious problem even for a brilliant lawyer like Konrad and even if you're innocent. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Feel in jail, but never bored!
24 July 2000 | by amikus2000See all my reviews

Never being in jail, this perfect psycho shocker enabled new views on life inside a jail-house in 'humanistic countries' to me. This adult toxic movie is more a psycho than a criminal. If you have turned off the lights, 'Ramon's' and 'Chernetzky's' actions suppress you. Best of the new talent, director Roland Suso Richter.
