Movie Info

In "Labyrinth of Lies" the economic miracle is changing the life of Germans in post-war Germany 20 years later. Most of them are sick of the war and prefer to push their guilt to the back of their mind. When a journalist (André Szymanski) identifies a teacher in the playground as a former guard from Auschwitz, no one wants to take notice. But a young prosecutor (Alexander Fehling) takes on the case and can't even be stopped by his boss. During his research he realizes that some Germans claim that they never heard the expression "Auschwitz," while others try to forget about it. As the resolute prosecutor doesn't give up, the Attorney General Fritz Bauer (Gert Voss) retains him to take charge of the investigations. Struggling with an overload of information, the young attorney blunders into a labyrinth of guilt and lies where he almost gets lost.

Audience Reviews for Labyrinth Of Lies

  • Feb 06, 2016
    It has the bland and uninspired aesthetics of a film made for television but at least understands well the complexity of its subject matter despite some typical clichés of TV movies, like the protagonist giving in to alcohol abuse and his incomprehensible decision in the third act.

    Too soapy, unfocused & formulaic.
