Patricia Aulicki: “A very complex, interesting and intense character”
The investigation into the mysterious body of a woman found in a mountain lake is being led by Patricia Aulicki – who grew up in Salzburg and Tyrol – as a difficult inspector for Lisa Cohen in her Tyrolean homeland. The search for Cohen’s traces provokes a series of shocking discoveries that increasingly entangle her – and overwhelm her emotionally. “Outwardly, Lisa is a very cool, tough woman and a very good researcher. She is incredibly careful, acts very intuitively, instinctively and is based on intestinal instinct, has a good heart, but also has big problems with allowing intimacy. Lisa is very introverted and closed, and that probably stems from her family history, which you become more familiar with during this film, where she learned to protect herself as a child. The camera can see feelings and how it really feels, but rarely shows them to the people around it. “A very complex, interesting and intense character, just great to play.”
Director Miriam Unger: “A Piece of Truth”
What does the audience expect? “The new country thriller shows a more urban Tyrol. “Innsbruck is our hotbed,” said director Miriam Unger. “The new investigator Patricia Aulicki is a self-determined, difficult policewoman who cannot be told. Stubborn and modern. A new boy we have not seen so often before. Your police officer plays the wonderful newcomer Dominic Raneburger, originally from East Tyrol. In general, the cast is characterized by new faces or exciting actors associated with Tyrol, who have not been seen so often in this context. “More on the special work for this film:” Eva Testor wrote the story. She also made a camera. Your view of the story and characters in the thriller in the country is more accurate, a view that reveals the lies of life and looks into the abyss. It clears the cliché image that tourism in Tyrol is spreading from the masses and shows us how being born a Tyrolean is a piece of truth. Women here are different. Black and white painting is avoided. “And the approach is cinematic.”
Miriam Unger on the secret of the success of the crime series in the ORF country: “Here the ORF won the gold. The rural thriller is such a smart format. Austria is not big, and yet we experience such subtle differences in cultures, languages, dialects and mentalities. The Earth Thriller beautifully takes all of this and thus creates bridges. There is nothing more important in such times. We get to know each other better and are curious about each other. Spiced with uncertainty and humor. In addition, it is a perfect experimental field for the directors of this country, and that is what the audience wants. “
