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.

A long-long episode of a sitcom
3 August 2001 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

The Austrian cabaret film is an own chapter in the film history book. There is nothing like it in Germany or in other countries. One Austrian comedian writes a screenplay, and all the others come together and act in the movie. Of course, the movie is funny but it is also supposed to have some deep insights and social criticism. Usually, the director's name is Harald Sicheritz. Some are more sophisticated, others are funnier. All of them are successful.

„Wanted` belongs to the second type: many gags, some of them really funny, but they are separate and unable to build up a continuous storyline. „Wanted` is like a long-long episode of a sitcom, without false laughs in the background. Everything is spoofed, but not spoofed enough to call it real criticism.

And the ending, of course, has to be „sad`. It has to make the audience „think`. „Wanted` is the worst cabaret film I've ever seen. That's a pity because there are others with Alfred Dorfer that are almost great: „Freispiel` for instance, or, my favourit: „Indien`. „Wanted` is forgettable, and also unable for selling it to the Germans because they wouldn't even understand the gags.
