Das Jüngste Gericht

Das Jüngste Gericht

Berkoff in a double episode Austrian tv thriller.  The films borrows a lot from from Silence of the Lambs.   The film stars Tobias Moretti- who's next film would be the promisingly titled 1½ Knights - In Search of the Ravishing Princess Herzelinde, Christoph Waltz and Silke Bodenbender.  Berkoff plays Conrad, but he is dubbed into German, so what is the point of using Berkoff?  Did they intend to dud the other actors into English and try and sell it abroard?  Directed by Urs Egger in 2008.
