Description:

Exciting poster by Árpád Bognár for a GDR movie. The poster as well as the title of the movie suggests that the film was a crime movie.

There is a man on the poster who feels very bad based on the was he sits. He is shown from the back. He is facing a chest of drawers and there is a glass on the floor next to him, which alludes that he might have been poisoned. The brushwork and the colours of the poster create a rather sinister atmosphere.The artist, Árpád Bognár used his technique what was typical of him: watercolour mixed with drawn lines.
