many problems need improvements
24 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Thomas Schubert is Roman Kogler, a kid who's serving time in a juvenile detention center. He has a day job as a morgue attendant. He is socially awkward and can't connect with anybody. Can he find the connection that he so desperately need?

This movie moves rather slowly. It meanders along as we follow Roman around. There isn't anything dramatic going on until the final third of the movie. So we're relying on this being a character study.

A character study has major problems here. The actor is not charismatic and the character is supposed to be withdrawn. Again that doesn't make for compelling watching.

A final reveal was very enlightening about his incarceration. However, I think a violent action scene at the beginning would inject much needed tension into this character. It would serve the movie much better to see the incident at the beginning rather than hear about it at the end.
