Breathing, K. Markovics, Austria, 2012

An incarcerated teenager attempts to get an early parole by working in a morgue, a perhaps unconsciously driven choice that leads him to come to terms with his own crime.

Schubert's performance is so eloquent and Markovics's direction so sure that the film blazes with an extraordinary power.
Time Out

Markovics's script circles around the themes of death and life in thoughtful and elegant ways: it is a well-carpentered screenplay which bears every sign of having been a labour of love, worked on fruitfully over many years.
