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

Of the life in prison.
22 July 2001 | by lionel.willoquetSee all my reviews

Condemned in fourteen days of detention to have refused to pay his fines, an arrogant lawyer sees his prison stay going on unexpectedly. The interpretation, convincing, is the best trump card of this small thriller of fair invoice at the idea of departure schemer but in the uneven suspense.
