Bis ans Ende der Nacht
Robert works as an undercover investigator and is supposed to bust a major Frankfurt dealer: Viktor is a club owner and runs a successful website which he uses to sell drugs on a grand scale. To establish contact with him, Robert fakes a relationship with Leni, a trans* woman, who knows the criminal from her past before her transition. But the feigned romantic involvement turns complicated: Robert is not sure of his feelings, the lines between reality and investigation strategy blur. For Leni, things are clearer: If the mission fails, she will have to go back to the men’s prison.
Hochhäusler stages a gritty crime with a tight plot and plays with genre elements. The focus is on the tension-filled chemistry of the undercover duo and an impressive antagonist. Till the End of the Night surprises with its dynamic cinematography and a high-contrast nostalgic heartbreak soundtrack.
