Benjamin (TOM SCHILLING) is invisible, a nobody. This changes abruptly when he meets charismatic Max (ELYAS M'BAREK). Even though they couldn't seem more different from the outside, they share the same interest: hacking. Together with Max's friends, the impulsive Stephan (WOTAN WILKE MÖHRING) and paranoid Paul (ANTOINE MONOT), they form the subversive Hacker collective CLAY (CLOWNS LAUGHING @ YOU). CLAY provokes with fun campaigns and speaks for a whole generation. For the first time in his life, Benjamin is part of something and even the attractive Marie (HANNAH HERZSPRUNG) begins noticing him. But fun turns into deadly danger when CLAY appears on the BKA's (Bundeskriminalamt, Federal Criminal Police Office) as well as Europol's most wanted list. Hunted by Cybercrime investigator Hanne Lindberg (TRINE DYRHOLM), Benjamin is no longer a nobody, but instead one of the most wanted hackers in the world.Written by

Surprisingly witty and intense hacker-related action
As I am not familiar with and interested in special technology, including hardware and software, I usually avoid related creations as they tend to include a lot of sophisticated terms and activities, but - from time to time - everybody needs some diversity, plus I heard some good stuff about this film.
And Who Am I - Kein System ist sicher caught my attention and admiration from the beginning - fast and intensive plot (but not too "flashing"), very good (Tom Schilling as Benjamin and Trine Dyrholm as Hanne Lindberg) and good (the rest) performances, skillful cinematography and directing, witty flashbacks and multiple solutions... At first, the inclusion of Marie's character seemed somewhat excessive, but eventually all the pieces fell into place and the result is a solid film recommended to fond of (getting to know about) modern threats and vulnerabilities.
And Schilling is a fine actor - based on 3 films I have seen with his participation. He could definitely have wider international employment and recognition.
