Movie Info

At some point in the not-so-distant future, an unnamed European city has evolved into a bizarre dystopian metropolis, whose residents inhabit towering utopian high-rises and work, collectively, in a single compound. Such is the backdrop of Austrian director Christian Frosch's intense and offbeat sci-fi thriller Silent Resident (AKA Weisse Lilien, 2007). Amid this strange onscreen environment, a young woman named Hannah (Brigitte Hobmeier) screams out for asylum from her physically abusive husband, Branco (Xaver Hutter). She ultimately grows so distraught that she flees from Branco on impulse - assisted by her friends, who help her move into the top floor of their facility. While Hannah's future brightens for a period, given her blossoming romance with the detective Hauks (Martin Wuttke) and the disappearance of Branco (who fails to turn up as expected after Hannah moves), the poor woman's paranoia builds - she constantly suspects that she is being watched by an unseen presence and learns of the dire fate of a previous occupant (whose body was spotted hurling from the upper balcony). Meanwhile, her friendships and romance with Hauks also begin to take on a decidedly odd character. Frosch filmed this saga at Alterlaa, formerly a utopian housing complex in Vienna, Austria. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
