Sun 10 Oct 10:45-12:23

In contrast to his acclaimed 2007 Oscar-winner The Counterfeiters, which told a forgotten story of the Second World War, Stefan Ruzowitzky’s latest looks at the forgotten men of the First. Rendered in a nightmarish, vertiginous style that recalls the roughly contemporary German Expressionist classic The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, it finds a group of Austrian POWs, led by the world-weary captain Perg (Murathan Muslu), returning to a Vienna they hardly recognise – and a society that barely remembers them. Almost immediately, one of their number is brutally murdered, then another, then another; each time, the killer leaves a series of gruesome clues. Against the wishes of his superiors, Perg resumes his pre-war career as a criminologist, in this satisfying whodunnit set against the jaded dawn of modern fascism. Damon Wise
