The Camera Murderer

feature, 35mm, 95 minutes

co-produced with: Austria Switzerland


Sonja has found her own heaven with Thomas. However, for Thomas the Garden of Eden is located in a remote piece of the countryside, right on the shore of beautiful Lake Fertő. They are expecting Thomas' old friends from Vienna, Heinrich and Éva for an Easter weekend visit. However, what starts out as a relaxing weekend in an idyllic environment is overshadowed by the news that three children have gone missing from the neighbouring village. As tensions increase appearances cannot be maintained and the "friends" start showing their true colours. Éva and Heinrich keep making comments that unsettle Sonja's trust in Thomas. Boundaries begin to merge into one another. They all have something to hide - but none of them is aware of what old wounds lie just beneath the surface.

Based on the novel Der Kameramörder by Thomas Glavinic.
