"Das System - Alles Verstehen Heisst Alles Verzeihen (The System – to understand everything means to forgive everything)"
"Starring the captivating Jacob Matschenz, ,The System, is a self-assured fiction feature debut about a young man who is seduced by power and money when he crosses paths with former agents of the East German secret police.
The once popular seaside town of Rostock, now a bit empty and much less alluring, is where this 20-year-old lives with his widowed mother. He doesn’t know anything about his father or the circumstances of his death. Being a bit of a rebel and a petty thief, he’s easily convinced by a man in a flashy car and suit to become his apprentice. He hopes to solve the mystery of his father’s death that his mother does not want to divulge. But as the full title of the film suggests, understanding comes at a price."
“An extremely well-researched, complex political thriller: shrewd, suspenseful and believable.”
“Jacob Matschenz plays brilliantly multi-layered in this mix of genres: political thriller, social drama and coming-of-age story.”
FINANCIAL TIMES DEUTSCHLAND
“Marc Bauder’s feature film debut combines a suspenseful, up-to-date economic thriller with questions about East Germany’s lingering past.”
