Tattoo is a German movie released in 2002, directed by Robert Schwentke. The movie is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Robert Schneider. Set primarily in Germany, the movie revolves around the character of Marc Schrader, who is played by August Diehl. Marc Schrader is a young police officer, who is ambitious and idealistic. Despite being young, he has already distinguished himself in the police force by solving a high-profile case. He is also engaged to a beautiful woman and looking forward to a bright future. However, his life takes a dramatic turn when a strange man named Maik Koslowski, played by Christian Redl, enters his life.

Maik Koslowski is a convicted murderer who has just been released from prison. He was found guilty of killing a young woman, but he maintains his innocence. Maik seeks Marc's help in proving his innocence and getting his life back on track. Marc, who is initially skeptical of Maik's claims, agrees to investigate the case further.

As Marc delves deeper into the case, he begins to uncover some startling secrets. He discovers that the victim, whose murder Maik was convicted of, had a tattoo on her back. The tattoo is a symbol of a secret society that operates in the shadows of German society, and whose members include some of the most powerful and influential people in the country.

As Marc continues his investigation, he finds himself drawn into the dark and dangerous world of the secret society. He discovers that they will stop at nothing to protect their interests and that they have already silenced anyone who threatens to expose them. Marc realizes that he is now in grave danger, and that the only way to survive is by unraveling the truth behind the murder and bringing the guilty to justice.

The movie is a gripping thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats throughout. The impeccable performances by August Diehl and Christian Redl make the movie a compelling watch. The movie is also visually stunning, with the dark and moody atmosphere perfectly capturing the sinister nature of the secret society.

Despite being a thriller, the movie also explores some thought-provoking themes such as justice, morality, and the abuse of power. The movie raises questions about the lengths people are willing to go to protect their interests and the cost of exposing the truth.

Overall, Tattoo is an excellent movie that delivers on all fronts. It is a thrilling and suspenseful ride, with great performances and beautiful visuals. The movie leaves a lasting impression on the viewer, making it a must-watch for fans of the thriller genre.
