Movie Info

Andreas and Stefan lead a happy life: Together with their beloved tomcat Moses, they live in a beautiful old house in Vienna's vineyards. They work as a musician and as a scheduler in the same orchestra and they love their large circle of friends. An unexpected and inexplicable outburst of violence suddenly shakes up the relationship and calls everything into question--the blind spot that resides in all of us.

[An] intriguing study of a relationship suddenly tipped off balance.

There's a whiff of mild homophobia about it, and it reminded me of the work of another Austrian film-maker, Michael Haneke, in that it basically hates its characters.

Tomcat is a difficult movie to penetrate; in many ways it is both painstakingly tedious yet at the same time it broaches a topic seldom seen in cinema.

Psychologically, there's perhaps something in the situation that's worth exploring, but director Händl Klaus so attenuates the already thin plot material that after a while it's hard to care about these guys.

Overlong but acutely observed it is cleverly understated and consistently intriguing.

Klaus reminds us in his masterful approach that patience is sometimes the most powerful device for a filmmaker to impress the magic of the story upon their audience.
