International Feature Film Competition

Vice lieutenant Eismayer holds a very important position in the Austrian Army. As a feared officer with ruthless training methods, he is assigned problematic recruits. One of these „troublemakers“ is Mario Falak, who is considered problematic in the masculine environment of the army because of his orientation. That is, with the exception of Eismayer himself, who, as an unattached gay man, quickly develops a crush on the private. But can he admit this affection not only to Mario but also to those around him? Or will he continue to play the heterosexual macho man role he has worked so hard to build over the years? The film is inspired by the story of the real Charles Eismayer. It had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the main film critics' prize.
