Drama, Suspense/Thriller
An ex-con (Johannes Krisch) runs errands for a Viennese brothel while carrying on a furtive love affair with one of the star attractions (Irina Potapenko); hoping to spring her from the place, he pulls a bank job, but it ends tragically when an unsuspecting policeman (Andreas Lust) intrudes. The action then segues from the city to the Austrian countryside, where the thief is calmed by the gentler rhythms of life and his scheme for vengeance against the traumatized cop takes an unforeseen turn. Writer-director Gotz Spielmann (Antares) avoids the clutter and manipulation of most thrillers, escalating tension almost solely through the characters' turbulent emotions. In German with subtitles. 121 min.
