One of Austria's best...
15 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

I've seen the movie yesterday for the third time and I think it's one of the best Austrian movies..ever! The actors are all well known Austrian "Cabarettists" (a Cabarett is a sort of comedy which has an high content of themes from politics and society).

And that's the movie about: Politics, society, midlife-crisis and so on...it's an universal movie...

But you have to be an Austrian or you have to know Austria very good to understand the whole content of it. Two out of three jokes are specific Austrian and about the situation in Austria and aim at political Parties or other specific habitudes of the "Homo sapiens Austriacus"

If you are an Austrian, you love the movie. If you aren't an Austrian, you don't understand the movie - that's it...
