Film Fest Gent - Agonie

On the 29th of November, a young man murders and dismembers his lover. The head, torso and limbs are found in various dumpsters in Vienna. The motive for the crime is still unclear.

Does a life story add up to a causal and coherent narrative? Do protagonists have the right to exist when they aren't important for the stories of any other characters? "'Agony' ends up a cross between Ulrich Seidl and Xavier Dolan's emotionally arresting travails of young men." (Senses of Cinema)
