Not always the young guys are the bad boys...
5 June 1999 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

Its twenty years since I saw this film, but I remember it as one of the best works the Directors duet Patzak/Zenker ever did.

Its about a teenage boy who is mistreated by his father, who is an active nazi and foreigners-hater, which in its full extent is unknown to his family. The boy is already rebelling against his father and his questionable values.

I'm no longer really sure how the story ends, but if you ever get the chance go see this movie!

I know such guys are still about here in vienna - few as they may be.
