TV 54 Hours (2018, Sascha Alexander Geršak, Alexander Scheer) Published 6 months ago on December 7, 2018 Based on a gripping true story and directed by Kilian Riedhof, four part German drama 54 Hours examines an armed bank robbery gone awry in 1988. While fleeing from the police, the two gangsters take an entire busload hostage. The ensuing manhunt, however, turns into a disaster. The police make fools of themselves with their amateurish operations and, above all, are obstructed by the nation’s media who swoop down on the events in their rat race for the juiciest pictures and live interviews with the kidnappers. As Rösner, the driving force of the duo, orchestrates their 54 hours of fame in cold blood, his accomplice Degowski derives sinister pleasure from manipulating the media. But Degowski is also unpredictable and violent. When he loses his nerve, and kills a teenage passenger in the bus, the two men choose two young women as their hostages while leaping into another getaway vehicle. Thus, begins an odyssey that goes completely out of control, marking one of the biggest hits for the local broadcaster in 1988. production details Germany | 4×45 minutes | 2018 Director: Kilian Riedhof Script: Kilian Riedhof, Holger Karsten Schmidt cast Sascha Alexander Geršak as Hans-Jürgen Rösner Alexander Scheer as Dieter Degowski Marie Rosa Tietjen as Marion Löblich Joachim Paul Assböck as Horst Tiemann Martin Wuttke as Leiter Kripo Bremen Ulrich Noethen as Einsatzleiter Recklinghausen Stephan Kampwirth as Innensenator Bernd Meyer August Zirner as Innenminister NRW Marcel Hensema as Jasper Maas Amelie Kiefer as Karin Johannes Allmayer as Harald Zsá Zsá Inci Bürkle as Silke Lilli Fichtner as Ines Riccardo Campione as Emanuele de Giorgi Vinicio Marchioni as Aldo Uli Krohm as Großvater Heinrich Tatja Seibt as Großmutter Helene Albrecht Schuch as Pressefotograf Arnd Klawitter as Redakteur Holger Handtke Jörg Malchow Dirk Borchardt as PHK Schmitz Christoph Schechinger Lena Urzendowsky Christian Skibinski as Reporter Oliver Bigalke as Kommissar Drasdik Jesse Albert André Dietz Sven Gerhardt as Polizeioberrat Spychala Gabriele Schulze as ältere Dame Frank Stieren as SEK-Verbindungsbeamter Ralf Dittrich Michael Kamp Harald Burmeister Guido Lambrecht as Polizeihauptkommissar Marian Kindermann Melanie Tòth Dirk Sonnenschein as Reporter Jannik Nowak as Wachbeamter Lara Brucci as Giuseppina Giolina Ardente as Tatiana Michael Lott Thomas Limpinsel as Telefonpsychologe Thomas Kügel as Revierleiter Alexander ScheerAmelie KieferAugust ZirnerCrimeDramaHolger Karsten SchmidtJoachim Paul AssböckJohannes AllmayerKilian RiedhofMarcel HensemaMarie Rosa TietjenMartin WuttkeSascha Alexander GeršakStephan KampwirthThrillerUlrich NoethenZsá Zsá Inci Bürkle Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 hours ago Victorian Sensations: Seeing and Believing Series Final Wed 5 Jun on BBC Four In the final episode of this series, psychotherapist Philippa Perry explores how the late Victorian passion for science co-existed with...
