Jerry Cotton

by Cyrill Boss, Philipp Steinert

Based on the cult novels from the 1960s, translated into 14 languages, sold to more than 50 countires and published all in all more than 1 Billion times.

New York FBI agent JERRY COTTON (Christian Tramitz) is on the brink of losing his sterling reputation: the head of the Supervisory Authority DARYL D. ZANUCK (Christiane Paul) accuses him of having committed a double murder. Did Jerry shoot SAMMY SERRANO (Moritz Bleibtreu) out of revenge because he was unable to nail him for the theft of the States Union gold? And did he really kill his FBI partner TED CONROY (Janek Rieke) in order to eliminate the sole witness? For Jerry, it's the beginning of a race against time: he must elude his own colleagues from the FBI, track down the gangster KLAUS SCHMIDT (Heino Ferch) and his gang (Monica Cruz, Jürgen Tarrach, Joram Voelklein), and find the true killer as soon as possible. Jerry's sole allies are his red Jaguar XKE, his .38 Smith & Wesson, and his new partner PHIL DECKER (Christian Ulmen).

"… surprisingly high-caliber entertainment… not only the action sequences are compelling, but also the entire visual concept can easily hold its own with Hollywood productions."
