Intimate and harrowing documentary of a missing person, 15 November 2012
Author: oliver454 from Austria

I really do not understand why this film has such a low rating. While it may be because of the production values, which I admit are not the best, the cinematography is at times quite amateurish, the structure of the piece is excellent and it presents the information in a very objective fashion and is as fascinating as it is harrowing from start to finish.

I saw the film about a year ago at the Viennale with Aeryns mother Kathy present and I really felt inspired by her commitment to finding out what really happened to her son. Her immense strength to go on is amazing and shows just how deep the love of a family member can run in times of great adversity. It would be fantastic if this film had more exposure as it shows just how corrupt and narrow minded the police in Austria can be, The way Kathy was handled and the way the case was handled in general is quite frankly disgusting.

Vienna, the "best city in the world" has a lot of strange things going on beneath its surface which need to be addressed before I believe it can truly be viewed as a prime example of an international metropolitan city, it has always reminded me of a Lynch film in many ways and this documentary simply strengthens that idea. The cover-up which seems to be going on here shows an extremely eerie underbelly to the facade of Vienna as a classical, safe and problem free city. I highly recommend this film to anyone who values fairness and transparency in the handling of crimes related to homosexuality, which were perhaps 50 years ago viewed as extremely volatile situations in many European cities and are now however largely treated on a level playing field to all other criminal cases in places like New York or London. Vienna needs to catch up fast in the way it treats the LGBT community as well as ethnic minorities and this film definitely shines a glaring spotlight on the former of these two problems.
