Feature Narrative / 2021 / Austria / 103min / Directed by Peter Brunner
Official Selection: Locarno Film Festival
On a rural mountainside, a mother and son carve out an ascetic existence far removed from everyday convention.
And then, one day, a drone emerges, hovering over their small farmhouse.
Combining elements of psychological horror and drama, with a rich arthouse sensibility, Luzifer is a must see for anyone interested in existential fears and nightmares.
Director Peter Brunner, a former student of Michael Haneke at the Vienna Film Academy, creates a work rich in mood and spectacle, while leads Susanne Jensen and Franz Rogowski (also seen in Freaks Out screening at this year’s Revelation) deliver powerful performances, creating an essential cinematic work.
Garnering well deserved wins at Stiges, Lorcano, and Diagonale, Austria, as well as Austin Fantastic Fest, Luzifer is guaranteed to stay with viewers long after the credits have rolled.
