A Film by Marco Gadge

Synopsis

Shadows are all Commissioner Berger sees: the darkness he comes from is too powerful to escape, and years of delivering news of others’ deaths have made him a cynic. Now his new colleague, Martin Stern, has Berger completely at a loss; even worse, Stern’s young wife Sophie has trustingly turned to him for help. Berger feels himself drowning in all of this intimacy. JOB follows the film noir tradition, and allows audiences to look deeply into the souls of its despairing protagonists.
