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>

Film about the very real life
26 July 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have not seen this movie in detail yet, so I cannot give a real review. This film (roughly) is about daily life in a lower social class, and it turns out to be pretty realistic. There's no instance that matches things against the good/bad/happy_end "Hollywood scheme".

See this film, but make sure you are not in a bad (depressed/unstable) mood. By the way, there is much utilization of repeating music. You probably will connect at least one popular (European) song of the 90s to this film after seeing it.
