Der Fal?che Mann

Status Completed

Genre Thriller

Director Markus Hafner

The Wrong Man tells the story of three crooks who kidnap a supposed banker. But before the perpetrators can make their ransom demand, they discover that they seem to have kidnapped the wrong man. Or maybe not...?


Their victim, Alexander Richter, claims to be a dentist and only has his practice in the same building as the bank. But because the real banker happens to be having an affair with Richter's wife, Julia, the kidnappers should make the ransom demand on Richter's wife...

The Wrong Man is a dark, atmospheric confusion game with many twists that plays with the identity of the kidnapped until the surprising resolution. The independent feature film is part complex chamber play, part uncompromising thriller.
