Screenwriter: Markus Schleinzer



With a directorial approach that is as essential as possible – and with evident influences from the cinema of Michael Haneke – Markus Schleinzer – together with Kathrin Resetarits – has opted in Michael for a skilful minimal direction in staging the events of the two protagonists. A minimal direction made up of essential shots, fixed camera and very little dialogue. In competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2011.



In Angelo, through the story of an individual, the director staged the complicated – and sadly topical – theme of diversity, taking the opportunity to develop a lucid and merciless analysis of society and – more generally – of humanity, regardless of the century in which we live.
