Director: Markus Schleinzer
German version with Czech and English subtitles / 2011 / 96 min.
Cast: Michael Fuith, David Rauchenberger, Christine Kain, Ursula Strauss

This film presents the last five months of 10-year-old Wolfgang, who is - against his will - living together with 35-year-old Michael. The film describes, without emotion or sentiment, the daily life of a man who feigns an idyllic family relationship with an unwilling boy who is forcibly confined. The respectable employee of an insurance company maintains the appearance of a normal lifestyle while attempting to cover up his on-going crime. The largely static shots from the cold, detached camera convey no more than is necessary for an understanding of the plot. The reserved directing style not only adds to the credibility of the film and gives it greater impact, but also dominates the outstanding performances of the central characters.
