Director: Michael Glawogger
A post-modern faux-thriller about obsession, guilt and wanting to ‘off' your dad.
Irascible and lazy, Rupert ‘Ratz' Kramer is a 35-year-old slacker who plays out his patricidal fantasies through the development of a violent computer game. A chance call from an old flame sends him to New York, where he hopes to sell his creation to a games company, but instead becomes embroiled in events that begin to pose increasingly uncomfortable moral questions.
Part thriller, part psychological family drama, part exploration of German-Austrian war guilt, this film from Michael Glawogger (Slumming and Workingman's Death, MIFF 06) defies categorisation.
Adapted from the novel Das Vaterspiel by Josef Haslinger.
