Peter Perg (Murathan Muslu), a former detective, returns to Vienna after seven years as a Russian prisoner of war. When a brutal series of murders shocks the city, he sets off to hunt down the killer. Stefan Ruzowitzky’s thriller, visually and atmospherically inspired by expressionist cinema motifs, uses powerful visual language to capture the fragility of a society traumatized by war.
