Kill Daddy Good Night


Dir. Michael Glawogger. 2009, 110 mins. With Helmut Köpping, Christian Tramitz, Sabine Timoteo. Ratz, a Viennese computer programmer consumed with patricidal hatred, has devoted himself to creating a game centered on the virtual killing of his father, a hypocritical politician. A call from an ex-girlfriend leads him to New York, and to an unexpected find in a Long Island basement. Freely adapted from the novel Das Vaterspiel by Josef Haslinger, Kill Daddy Good Night is equal parts thriller, family drama, and examination of historical memory.
