Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires
Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

A military-industrial complex, dubious deaths, sickness, secrets, conspiracies, and an investigation that reminds us of State of Play. The Lies of Victors is a German political-journalist thriller about deception, power, and failure, which works, in rhythmic terms, just like a good Hollywood movie. Hochhäusler proves that through a solid storytelling, he can sustain that rhythm and unfold it with a remarkable personality, showing great resolve in seducing us with angular shots, a highly elaborated editing, lens flares, and other resources that stand as genuine attractions instead of mere ornaments. This way, the film manages to stay away from both European imitations of the American mainstream and the rigors of the so-called School of Berlin. Hochhäusler also proves he’s a filmmaker with the necessary stylistic courage to differentiate himself from the tested formulas of the festival circuit. JPF
