"MICHAEL opens up to the viewer the perpetrator's perspective of an unbelievable crime. With sober forensics, it shows the soul landscape of the incomprehensible and reprehensible. The art of omission applied with perfection, the filmmaker's conceptual courage and a precise lead actor make this clever film a careful approach to the abomination that will never be forgotten."


Statement of the Max Ophüls Film Festival Jury, on the occasion of the award "Best Feature Film" 2012: MICHAEL describes the last five months of involuntary cohabitation of 10-year-old Wolfgang and 35-year-old Michael.


"A concentrated, clever, thoughtful and controversial film about an acute social issue." DER SPIEGEL
