Careful (1992)

Film details


The villagers of Tolzbad live in fear of avalanches, and so must speak quietly and avoid loud noises. Against this atmosphere Johann commits incest with his drugged mother while Klara, the girl he loves, also has an incestuous relationship with her father. [The film is made to recall an early sound picture with intertitles bridging scenes and a deliberately scratchy soundtrack].
