Storyline

Vienna, 1995. Jasmin, Tamara, Valentin, Senad and Roman live near the northern border of Austria. Their lives repeatedly intersect and drift apart. The characters involved are young migrants from the former Yugoslavia, Romania, Poland and Austria itself. Strangers in a strange land, they feel a sense of loss in their new, temporary environment. The five-some meet and get close to each other, hopelessly clinging to friendships and relationships with no future. They frequent cafés and train stations dreaming of a better tomorrow. Often, they just fall back on the prospect of short-term affection in yet another doomed romantic or sexual encounter. Trying hard to suppress the memories of war and alienation, they try to find moral strength and warmth through one another. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Beautiful film with great soundtrack
18 August 2000 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

A great film about a multicultural group of young people in Vienna, centered on the friendship between former school pals Jasmin (an Austrian girl) and Tamara (a Serbian girl from Bosnia, but brought up in Austria). The film gives you the feeling that it is perfectly REAL, that this is what the world (or, at least, Vienna) is like. It does have some brutally realistic episodes but also shows some beautiful moments of love and friendship in an unfriendly world. Wonderful performances, especially by Nina Proll who had always been cast as the pretty dumb blonde before but has the opportunity to show her great talent in this film. Also pay attention to the interesting soundtrack, a mixture of mid-Nineties pop, Serbian pop music and Rumanian rap.
