Storyline

Austrian small time crook Johnny Pichler meets a dubious 'businessman' at the Slovak border to hand over a wad of cash. Things do not go as planned and suddenly Johnny is on the run with callgirl Shirley, the money and the gangster's Cadilliac. After several fruitless attempts to sell the car, Shirley dumps Johnny, who has hopelessly fallen in love with her. Based on an address on a photo, Johnny decides to search for her in Lviv in the Ukraine. Written by Armin Ortmann <armin@sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de>

And the East is Blue
5 June 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

And you thought road movies about bizarre love triangles set in motion by small-time heists gone awry were peculiar to American independent films. Change the names to Johnny and Ignaz, and shift the setting from the highways of the USA to the ruined roads of the former Soviet empire, and you get this wonderful moody and well executed picture about lost souls in a strange world.
