Rising High tells the story of the rise and fall of two real-estate fraudsters. Viktor Stein (David Kross), Gerry Falkland (Frederick Lau) and the banker Nicole Kleber (Janina Uhse) get incredibly rich within a short period of time. But soon they are sucked deeper and deeper into a maelstrom of lies, fraud and deceit - until at some point they completely lose sight of reality and have to decide what is really important to them.

Critic Reviews for Rising High (Betonrausch)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

The idea is The Wolf of Wall Street Does Potsdamer Platz. Kaya is no Scorsese.

April 29, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"Rising High" is a white collar crime movie with little pizazz and even less substance.

April 17, 2020 | Full Review…

This is a competently crafted movie too shallow to come up with much reason why we should root for these people, and too derivative to make their vertiginous rise and fall more than forgettable formula entertainment.

April 15, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a bit like a Brit geezer-caper film in some ways, and, like so many of those, sounds as though it is based on a hundred urban myths and friend-of-a-friend anecdotes. What makes it more than just that is Kross...

Kross, Lau and Uhse all do a great job with what they have - Kross in particular standing out with a range that spans wide-eyed kid to slick city boy, through wannabe chancer and everything in-between - but the script isn't quite strong enough to keep up.

April 23, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Drug use, binge drinking, cursing in formulaic crime drama.
