This is a portrait of an impassive man whom we observe quietly going about his suburban life: attending work, returning with his shopping to cook dinner in his neat and tidy home. We soon learn this man has a boy held captive in his cellar. What makes the film so compelling is the ordinariness of their strangely domestic set up: at times they could be mistaken for father and son. Measured, eerie and confident, both in style and concept, Markus Schleinzer's debut film Michael created a stir at its premiere at Cannes in 2011.
