A juvenile delinquent gets a work release job with at the city coroner department... high jinks ensue, but Austria is close enough to the Eastern Bloc that the high jinks are appropriately soul crushing.
Another great example for Austrian cinema. This film comes along very quiet without being boring. It's a character study close to the coming of age genre, at times a little depressing, but it never loses a certain flicker of hope. Also noteworthy: Thomas Schubert who delivers a fine performance was casted as an amateur actor.
The type of movie that makes you stop, think and reflect
The movie communicates through the visuals and does not rely on words, and it's very refreshing in the sense that it suffices in pulling the audience in the quite complicated state of mind of its main character. The only thing I didn't like was sound editing and music; it's possible to add to the movie experience without making it over-dramatic.
Excellent debut feature, reminiscente of the Dardenne Brothers.
A young man that's been in orphanages or in jail all his lifetime tries to start a new life. He gets a job at a morgue and we follow him and his quite depressing life. The pacing here is great and the development is neat - we get to know many characters. The imagery is OK, the acting is OK and the atmosphere is fine.
This is Karl Markovics' directorial debut. A guy that's probably most known from his acting in "The Counterfeiters". His film is good and worth a watch, but it's not some mindblowing stuff. It's getting better and better towards the end though. That's a good thing.
7 out of 10 squirting beers.
As still as a corpse, and as cold.
A story of self-realisation powerfully written, performed and directed.
Beautiful, but I couldn't find it in my heart to like the main character.
An impressive and very controlled debut, emotionally painful and introspective.
