Conclusion: Karl Markovics's directorial debut, Breathing , is a very impressive film about a young man trying to come to terms with his past. It is easily one of the most moving films I have seen this year, and also the best looking release produced by British distributors Verve Pictures to date. If interested in contemporary European Cinema, I strongly urge you to consider adding Breathing to your collections. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?
Conclusion: Best known until now for Oscar-winning holocaust drama The Counterfeiters, Karl Markovics flexes his muscles on the other side of the camera with terrific effect. A fine, moving debut for the new writer/director.
