MUBI's take

Together with Angela Schanelec and Christian Petzold, Thomas Arslan (Gold) is an active member of the Berlin School. His first genre film, In the Shadows, is a taut and twist-filled, Berlin-set crime thriller with echoes of Melville, centered on an ex-con whose past catches up with him.
