Nightshift - The Calm before the Storm

OT: Nachtschicht – Die Ruhe vor dem Sturm

Lars Becker // Germany, 2021
Fiction Feature // FF2022



Fighting crime in times of climate change. Hamburg in a state of emergency. A hurricane with wind speed 12 is heading for the city. A prisoner transport collides with an animal transport. The murderer Axel Krakoff and two apes escape. Before the curfew falls, insurance scammer Bonnie quickly tries to earn a few notes and two rappers start a drug delivery service by drone. To make sure they have enough gear, they mug ex-boxer Mickey Mommsen (Roland Koch). The stupid thing is, Mickey is a major local criminal you don’t mess with. Lots to do for Erichsen and his colleagues from the CID 24-hour service – which is nothing unusual, if it weren’t for the storm of the century brewing. Best whodunnit entertainment with oddball humour, odd characters and an excellent Erichsen.


LARS BECKER (*1954 in Hannover) has made numerous cinema and TV films since the 1980s which have often been shown at FILMEST HAMBURG, including his thriller Amigo.
