Silentlum | Chicago Reader

Silentlum

Directed by Wolfgang Murnberger, this 2005 absurdist thriller set in Salzburg stars Josef Hader as a disheveled private detective hired by a widow to investigate her husband's violent suicide. The gumshoe gets in over his head as he discovers the death might be part of a larger conspiracy orchestrated by the local Catholic bishop and higher-ups at the Salzburg Music Festival. Wolf Haas's darkly comic script, based on his popular mystery novels, gets in some good digs at two of Austria's most revered institutions. In German with subtitles. 116 min.
