The Collini Case (DVD)
A slick and thrilling courtroom drama inspired by one of the biggest legal scandals in German history. Franco Nero stars.
Based on the international bestseller by Ferdinand von Schirach.
Young attorney Caspar Leinen is assigned his first major case when appointed by the court as a defence counsel to 70-year-old German-Italian Fabrizio Collini, accused of murder.
For Caspar, there is much more at stake than his first big case as a defence lawyer. The victim was not only the grandfather of his childhood sweetheart Johanna but also a mentor and father figure to him in his youth. It becomes clear that although getting Collini a not-guilty verdict would propel his career there would be damage to his personal relationships. Casper delves deeper into the high-profile case, unravelling the secret troubled past of the family he thought he knew so well.
