Roman Kogler, 18, is serving time in a juvenile detention center. Homeless and ill-equipped to deal with society, he finally finds a day-release job at Vienna’s municipal morgue that might win him probation. One day, Roman is faced with a dead woman who bears his family name. Even though it soon turns out that she is not a relative, Roman wonders about his past for the first time and starts looking for his mother. Writer/director Karl Markovics (the expressive star of The Counterfeiters) opts for a restrained, impressively controlled style in this, his first feature. Using subtle widescreen compositions and almost no dialogue he introduces Roman not only as a solitary boy with no friends around him, but also a rebellious character who hates taking orders and resents human company. More impressive still, he extracts a poignant, realistic performance from his young star, Thomas Schubert, a non-professional actor. Winner: Best Film, Best Actor, Sarajevo Film Festival.
