A man who accused a catholic bishop of abusing him when he was a child dies in the Austrian city Salzburg. Everyone except his widow and the eccentrical detective Simon Brenner keeps silent and believes that the man killed himself.
I've seen the movie yesterday for the third time and I think it's one of the best Austrian movies..ever! The actors are all well known Austrian "Cabarettists" (a Cabarett is a sort of comedy which has an high content of themes from politics and society).
And that's the movie about: Politics, society, midlife-crisis and so on...it's an universal movie...

If you are an Austrian, you love the movie. If you aren't an Austrian, you don't understand the movie - that's it...
