greatest austrian film!
10 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

well, what can you say about this film? it's best to see it 'cause you can't describe it! but i'll try: the film takes place in vienna on mother's day. the family doesn't want to celebrate this day but thinks they have to and the mother doesn't want them to do but nobody tells the others. so there's a lot of trouble that ends in a little chaos - not as bad as "hinterholz 8".

the actors are the best from the austrian comedy has and in this film the product is the best ever done in austria. really funny (even when you don't like the viennese dialect!). it seems to be a copy of life there - so don't trust these guys ;-)
