| New York, NY - January 17, 2012 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release of Breathing, the acclaimed directorial debut of Austrian actor Karl Markovics which Charles Gant in Variety called "A perfectly formed slice of stylized social realism... the film achieves a lyrical beauty". Kino Lorber released the film theatrically last year. |
Breathing is set to street on DVD on January 22nd, with a SRP of $29.95. Bonus features include the theatrical trailer and a stills gallery.
In Breathing, nineteen-year-old Roman Kogler (newcomer Thomas Schubert) is serving time in a juvenile detention center. He has already served half of his sentence, and could be released on probation, but his chances are poor: he doesn't have a family, and seems incapable of coping with society. After many failed attempts, Roman finds a probation job at the municipal morgue in Vienna. One day, Roman is faced with a dead woman who bears his family name. Even though it soon turns out that she is not his mother, Roman wonders about his past for the first time and starts looking for her.
The acclaimed directorial debut from veteran Austrian actor Karl Markovics (star of the Academy Award®-winning The Counterfeiters), Breathing is an eloquent, affecting portrait of an incarcerated teenager.
