For many, he is above all the fluffy and at the same time ingenious investigator who transfers the powerful to their luxury villas in a crumpled trench coat. But Peter Falk not only embodied Inspector Columbo, but also worked as an actor with directors such as Frank Capra, Sydney Pollack and Blake Edwards. And of course with his friend John Cassavetes, for whom he played alongside Cassavete's wife Gena Rowlands in the independent film "A Woman Under Influence" from 1975. The documentary gets to the bottom of the great success of the TV series character - and the legendary actor who embodied him.
