Simply the best Austrian film - Hands down!
14 October 2002 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

To my mind "Indien" is the best Austrian movie there is, with only "Der Bockerer" starring Karl Merkatz coming close. It's the story of two simple men (Josef Hader should originally have played Alfred Dorfer's part and Dorfer was supposed to do Hader's character. It's a good thing they decided to switch roles.) who can't stand each other but who have to work together. On their journey through Austria they get to know and like each other. The movie starts out funny and gets very sad in the end. But although the lives of Fellner and Bösel are really tragic "Indien" is a very optimistic movie, a movie about friendship, the meaning of life and, well, India. It should be watched with subtitles. I don't think translation works with this one.
