A hacker or a computer expert has a life apart from his profession. Not just if he is a hacker doesn’t mean that his entire life consists of things that are related to problem-solving or hacking out something. That is what is explained in the German techno-thriller technological film- Who Am I. Who Am I is based on the story of a hacker whose life’s another side is shown in this film, the hacker has got involved in the mystery of a murder, in the whole film we don’t come to know whether really the hacker had been the real culprit or not and we are only shown in the entire film that the hacker tries to save himself from that claim.
The victim side of the hacker is shown in the Who Am I, not the side of the murderer in the film. The film starts with the same important story of a murder in which the name of the hacker from Berlin comes in to play, and there proceeds the film with all the codes, that sometimes becomes difficult to ingest. But, after watching the film, you too would wonder Benjamin correct or not.
