DAS SCHWEIGEN DER ESEL

Das Schweigen der Esel, while boasting a tension-filled narrative development, further enhanced by a sophisticated parallel editing, also presents a touch of welcome, typically Austrian irony, as well as, of course, numerous references to feature films of the past, as well as to literary classics.

BREATHING

As the title itself suggests, in Breathing, Karl Markovics’ debut film, air is, after water, the second central element.
