Synopsis

A grumpy old man from Vienna is hiring an Afghani immigrant to bury his dead dog. A simple story that could inspire reconciliation. But internationally renowned actor Karl Markovics, in full form on his third film as a director after “Superwelt” and “Breathing”, chooses another way: That of radical farce, in which things from the past – personal and political – are unearthed and bones are laid bare.

Both Heinz Trixner as 91-year-old-Robert and Borhanulddin Hassan Zadeh as Afghani Adib give superb performances, in which power relationships shift constantly to explore chauvinism in our world today. A one-of-a-kind moral tale, deeply rooted in Markovics’ compassionate stance as a filmmaker and drenched in pitch-black-Austrian humour, even as the situation becomes life-or-death.
