Cinematography: Wolfgang Simon

HEIDENLÖCHER

Drawing heavily from the cinema of Robert Bresson – complete with the choice of non-professional actors and the focus on a society with dubious morality – Wolfram Paulus has made a feature film in which the wide open spaces – and, in particular, the immense snowy expanses of the Salzburg area – convey a deep sense of agoraphobia, perfectly in line with the equally strong sense of claustrophobia in the interiors.
