Deadly Istanbul
Filmfest 2010

Cologne/Bonn Airport on an autumn day: Detective Mark Kleinert transports Baran Sahin, a young Turk arrested for illegal weapons possession, from Germany to Istanbul. It seems like a routine assignment – until Kleinert receives a call from his former lover Carla, urging him to meet her in Istanbul. When Kleinert shows up at the hotel room, Carla is dead. Kleinert is observed by undercover agent Jo Weiss, who works for the German Federal Crime Bureau BKA. Mark is suspended from service since he was the last person with contact with the victim. But he defies orders and continues to investigate. It seems he isn’t the only one who had an intimate relationship with Carla Paditz. She and Jo Weiss also had a mysterious past. An intriguing thriller with unexpected twists that pits two very different detectives against each other. Network Movie
