A returned POW tracks a serial killer in this visually stunning thriller set in the underbelly of post-WWI Vienna. Audience award winner, Locarno Film Festival.
Peter Perg was once a leading detective and criminologist. Now he’s a shattered ex-soldier shunned by those in power and haunted by his ordeal in a brutal POW camp. When several of his comrades are savagely murdered, Perg pursues the killer through a maze of twisted streets, contorted buildings and dimly lit alleys. Stefan Ruzowitzky (director of Oscar winner The Counterfeiters) honours the great age of German Expressionism with his nightmarish vision of a barely functioning Austrian society in the aftermath of the Great War. This riveting cat-and-mouse thriller marvellously invokes the spirit of masterpieces such as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920) and The Student of Prague (1913).
A stylish retro-noir serial killer thriller.
Stephen Dalton, The Film Verdict
A remarkable achievement that understands the cinema that inspired it.
