Synopsis

Roman is serving time in a juvenile detention center. After half of his term, Roman is released on probation and, after many failed attempts, he finds a job at the morgue in Vienna. One day, Roman is faced with a dead woman who bears his family name, and he begins to wonder about his past.

MUBI's take

Austrian cinema has given birth to some of the most accomplished dramas of existential self-discovery in recent years. Shortly after Revanche, there was Breathing: a sympathetic and deeply felt portrait of a juvenile relocating his place in an imperfect society. A thoughtful, compelling movie.
