Elegant cinematography by Martin Gschlacht, one of Austria's most sought-after lensers, gives "Breathing" added depth.

"Breathing" stands as a sure-handed look at an individual's slow journey toward realization.

Markovics shows a keen attention to performers that you'd expect from a thespian-turned-director.

Low-key, sombre, and slightly more lively than the coffins.

Observer [UK]

An affecting, unsentimental film with a strong central performance from Thomas Schubert.

This is London

Not exactly life-affirming, but Schubert's performance is so eloquent and Markovics's direction so sure that the film blazes with an extraordinary power.

A provocative debut that captures its subject under glass and is content to observe. It's painful and poetic but a shade too introspective for its own good.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

A beautifully judged, small-scale human drama that lingers in the memory long after some of those rowdy, big-budget blockbusters have faded.

Peter Bradshaw

Markovics's script circles around the themes of death and life in thoughtful and elegant ways: it is a well-carpentered screenplay which bears every sign of having been a labour of love, worked on fruitfully over many years.

David Jenkins
Little White Lies

As an actor-turned-director film, Markovics bracing debut is up there with Xavier Beauvois' of Gods and Men.

Markovics flexes his muscles on the other side of the camera with terrific effect. A fine, moving debut for the new writer/director.

Total Film

Thoughtfully shot by first-time director Karl Markovics, the only warmth comes from the stiffening cadavers.

Poignant story of a nineteen-year-old at a Austrian juvenile detention center who gets a probation job at a morgue and begins inching toward a new life.

Reel Film Reviews

...a persistently watchable piece of work that never quite becomes the riveting piece of work Markovics obviously wants it to be...

Top Critic IconTop Critic

There's no superficial flash here, just patient and compassionate storytelling gradually immersing us in this young man's world, as first-timer Schubert's vulnerable adolescent grows up before our very eyes.

A film of unreconciled impulses, Breathing is by turns vaguely sentimental and cooly detached in a manner that's ultimately more off-putting than it is complementary.

Can a film be faulted for being too sympathetic toward its characters, for limning a milieu with extraneous humanism?
