Only God Can Judge Me

When Ricky gets out of jail, his buddy already has the next heist planned. But their sure-fire scheme soon turns into a cat-and-mouse game with crooked cop Diana, who needs a share of the loot to safe her daughter’s life.


A hard-hitting, nail-biting gangster film, in which German A-listers Moritz Bleibtreu ("Baader Meinhof Komplex", "The Elementary Particles") and Birgit Minichmayer ("Downfall", "Everyone Else") play a nerve-wracking cat-and-mouse game. Authentically staged and fast-paced, ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME is the new film by Özgür Yildirim ("Chiko").

After a botched robbery attempt five years ago, Ricky went to jail for his brother Rafael and his buddy Latif. Now that’s he’s back out of jail, Latif wants to show his gratitude: He says he has a sure-fire scheme to get rich quick. Ricky could use the money to set up his new life. Ricky hesitates at first, but then agrees. Complications arise as soon as preparations start. Ricky is forced to take Rafael aboard, whom he really wanted to keep out of trouble. Things keep going awry, especially in the form of hard-up policewoman Diana, who’s in need of cash and develops considerable criminal energy of her own trying to foil the boys’ plan in an unforeseen way.
