Storyline

Der Unfallchirurg Thomas Reiter zieht sich freiwillig in eine geschlossene Anstalt zurück, weil er sich dem Alltag nicht mehr stellen will. Probleme löst er in seiner Vorstellung - einer Western-Phantasie. Ein Pfarrer wird von seinen besorgten Eltern beauftragt, ihren Sohn in die Wirklichkeit zurückzuholen. Als Thomas ihn auffordert, ihm in seine Welt des Westerns zu folgen, erkennt der Pfarrer, daß diese Realitätsflucht nicht frei von Faszination ist... Eine humoristische Betrachtung von Wirklichkeit und Vorstellung, ein Film über die Auflösung von Grenzen. "Da hat also jemand Schwierigkeiten mit seinem Leben und flüchtet sich in eine einfache Welt. Natürlich könnte ich als Drehbuchautor in so einem Fall auch sagen, er flüchtet sich in Videospiele - aber das war mir alles zu banal, das lag zu sehr auf der Hand. Der Western steht ja auch für etwas, er steht für Vereinfachung. Es gibt Gut und es gibt Böse, also ziemlich klare Richtlinien. Für mich war das der klarste Sprung für einen, ...

Surprisingly good!
8 November 1999 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

I didn´t expect too much when I went to see this movie, but in the end I have to say I was surprised how good it was. It´s both funny and thoughtful, it makes you think about your daydreams and our desire to escape from reality sometimes. The screenplay contains some wonderfully crazy and funny scenes, it is well acted and all in all it makes a movie really worth seeing.
