Crime scene “Dreams” from Munich: The strangest case

The Munich crime scene inspectors among musicians, dreaming and dreaming musicians.

Kalli once played the cello, and although he was still a child back then, he knows that orchestral musicians have “the stress level of Formula 1 drivers”. Kalli’s superior Leitmayr is a bit amazed (especially that his Kalli once played the cello) and immediately passes this sentence on to his colleague Batic, who will soon say Kalli … – but the stress level won’t help her.

The book about the crime scene “Dreams” (Moritz Binder, Johanna Thalmann), directed by Boris Kunz, sends the Munich commissioners, Miroslav Nemec and Udo Wachtveitl, and their assistant, Ferdinand Hofer, this time to a strange world, no, even two strange ones Worlds: that of classical music and that of dream research. That can be something – and we want to reveal that much, at least not one of the really strong Munich crime scenes.

Although the trio’s calmness in the face of all the challenges still has something to offer. They even pronounce the word one-ironautics, which has to do with so-called lucid dreaming, calmly in the one-ironautics laboratory. And actually they are doing everything right and consistent when an excited young woman shows up and reports a murder that she claims not to know, whether she committed it or just dreamed it.

That can’t be the case, is the first understandable reaction that someone doesn’t know. Does she want to be kidding? But why?

The young Marina Eeden, Jara Bihler, is a violinist. She wants to have killed (maybe, maybe not) her friend and competitor for an orchestral job, Lucy Castaneda (Dorothee Neff), who has actually disappeared for two days. The investigators call a psychologist for help (“very interesting case”, she says cheerfully), but still don’t forget to screen the friend (Theo Krebs), who, as a high-performance gymnast, has a completely different kind of stress, training stress – and so just no time (?), as he states, to worry about Lucy.

In a quiet minute in the car, Batic says to colleague Leitmayr, in the face of crowds of hysterical and / or scheming musicians and a dream researcher, Katrin Röver, that this is “the strangest case in 30 years”. In any case, it is a case that cheerfully reproduces the cliché of the completely over-the-top artists. Who only live for their art and their ambition, which seems to be incompatible with something like the ability to distinguish between dream and reality. Incidentally, the film was shot in reality, namely in the Gasteig cultural center in Munich and with the Munich radio orchestra.

As in the Frankfurt crime scene last Sunday, the viewer is shown various nervous-shaky variants / flashbacks and lets them guess which of them dream and what happened. As in the Frankfurt crime scene, young women are evidently of particular interest to the TV thriller if they are as exaggerated as they are highly talented. They aim high in every respect and so prefer to hang around on roofs from which one has a breathtaking view of the city.

However, despite all the similarities, the Munich-based company managed to achieve the far more original resolution – which, of course, cannot be revealed here. Because “Dreams” is, as I said, not one of the strong BR crime scenes, rather lower midfield. But the investigators go about their work so professionally, even in this “strangest case”, that it is a pleasure. And by the way, you learn that dates help with insomnia, you immediately see if there is something to it – and you have learned something useful again.
