Like Night and Day

Has anyone heard of or seen this movie - "Black and White Like Night and Day"? Apparently it was a "chess thriller".

[Wolfgang] Petersen moved to features with "One of Us Two" (1973), the story of a student who blackmails one of his professors. It, like his next picture, the controversial homosexual love story "Consequences" (1977), starred Jurgen Prochnow, an actor with whom he had worked on "Tatort". After shooting the chess thriller "Black and White Like Night and Day" (1978), he reteamed with Prochnow as the "old man" of "Das Boot" (1981), at the time the most expensive German film ever made (about $12 million).

If you're interested, here is the full interview (for film buffs).
