NOV. 2-3-4. AUSTRIA, 2011

BREATHING.  Karl Markovics. With Thomas Schubert, Karin Lischka, Gerhard Liebman.

German with English subtitles, N.R, 90 min.

Roman is a teenage boy who grew up from birth in institutions and is now in a detention facility for the accidental killing of another youth.  One day, a chance discovery challenges him to reconsider his identity. Starkly lit, composed in the Austrian style of Haneke, Hausner et al, Markovics’s film displays a sense of redemptive purpose that is more like the British social realists and may also have been inspired by The Son, by Belgian neo-realists Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne.(Rotten Tomatoes)
