Title: [Movie] Who Am I (2021) – Netflix Review And MP4 Trailer Download
Post by: Yakub Oloyede on February 27, 2021, 04:01:21 AM

WHO AM I is a German thriller on Netflix by the DARK series creators. The original full title is “Who Am I – Kein System ist sicher” and the last part of the title is German for “No system is safe”.

Obviously, this is a pretty big plot point in a movie about hackers.

The cast is full of familiar faces from Dark (of course), so if you’re a fan of that series, you’ll probably enjoy this.

Also, the main protagonist is portrayed by Tom Schilling who also starred in Never Look Away (2018). A German movie that was nominated for two Academy Awards.

Who Am I reminded me of a (very!) updated version of the 1995 movie Hackers that starred Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller. Just like with that movie, the actual job of hacking is shown in a more creative way to help the viewer keep up. And also, to keep it interesting for the audience.

Even more so, however, I was reminded of the German movie Good Bye Lenin! (2003) starring Daniel Brühl of The Alienist series. Mostly, this latter movie is an obvious comparison in the narrative style since we have the main protagonist as a storyteller.

Finally, there’s the very obvious Fight Club comparison which should be impossible to miss quite early on. However, this isn’t (really) a spoiler, so don’t think you’ve got it all figured out. You’ll see!

Baran bo Odar is the director of Who Am I as well as the co-writer of the screenplay alongside Jantje Friese. And yes, this is the actual duo that created the German Netflix series Dark. Baran bo Odar directed all 26 episodes (across three seasons) of the series and both are listed as “creators”.

In other words, this is unlike the new Netflix series Tribes of Europa which is promoted as being “by the Dark creators” but only has some producers in common.

Also, this is not a new movie but it is new to Netflix. The film first came out in 2014 but it has hardly aged, so that shouldn’t be an issue.

Also, it is obvious why a release on Netflix should happen now with the very active partnership with husband and wife duo, Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. Especially since the duo is now working on their next Netflix series 1899 due out in 2022. In the meantime, have fun checking out this movie which was the first thing they wrote together.

Who Am I is out on Netflix in most countries from February 26, 2021.
