Very dry Austrian crime thriller
1 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

With more than one touch of drama floating your way. Superbly acted, with mysteries that cry to be solved and no easy answers to bail you or the movie out. Characters rich with little ticks and issues they have to deal with. With a past that is still haunting the present. But all in its good time.

The Austrians are more known for their weird sense of humor when it comes to films and this movie does not disappoint in that respect either. But it's more dry and more slow paced than other movies. If you can handle that and expect it, you'll be enjoying this. Trying to keep up and anticipating what is going to come next can be fun ... and it is in this instance
