You may have met a guy like Julius. Personable, friendly and seemingly very worldly, he's a little entitled, sure, and maybe a little too fond of the sound of his own voice. But then that would probably be a result of his vaguely hinted-at posh background, and when he's so full of weird, funny stories and so generous as to suggest a trip out on his family's boat, why complain?
Jöns Jönsson acutely observed satire is an exercise in delicious discomfort as Vienna museum guide Julius is gradually revealed to be both much less and much more than meets the eye, and his many stories start to seem less like funny anecdotes and more like camouflage masking a terrible, yearning void of personality inside. Julius lies, but Axiom deals in strange, unsettling, often darkly funny truth.
