A man called Horvath has vanished. The last leasing instalment for his car has not been paid. Reluctantly, Brenner agrees to a request from his old friend Berti and sets off to perform the mundane task of bringing back Horvath‘s vehicle – which entails him setting off on the long journey into the depths of the provincial countryside. A forwarding address left at the post office leads him straight to the Löschenkohl, a country restaurant with a fine reputation for roast chicken.
THE BONEMAN brings another of Wolf Haas‘ cult novels to the screen. And by now there is no doubt that Josef Hader has become the incarnation of the laconic private detective Brenner. But here too we can take delight in Brenner‘s affable screen companion Berti (Simon Schwarz) and – once again – in a cast comprising outstanding actors (from Josef Bierbichler to Birgit Minichmayr), giving us every reason to believe that Brenner‘s witty, spine-chilling show will become a major cinematic experience.
