Developed as an extension of the much acclaimed original German project, Europe - 99euro-films 2 pays tribute to film as an international medium. Nine directors contribute their very own vision to a feature film, that combines each episode with its very own and complete artistic freedom. The film offers an invisible framework, where a mysterious stranger takes the viewer on a trip throughout Europe, discovering the various locations and creating a secret inner storyline in between the single episodes. Never violating the artistic unity of each film, the stories come together to a vision of a modern and likewise morbid Europe, keeping alive a versatile view of its single identities. Written by
What already worked out for the German 99euro-films 1 proves again an interesting concept with its European sequel. EUROPE-99EURO-FILMS 2 is a get-together of the shortfilms of 9 European cult-directors such as vampire-film-director Harry Kümel, actress Ellen ten Damme, London horror-director Richard Stanley and Andrej Zulawski's son Xavery. RP Kahl's connecting episode takes the viewer on a trip through Europe's capitals. A mysterious beauty makes us curious of the stories which might be hidden in cities like Paris, London, Warsaw and Berlin. And we are being rewarded: The directors take us into the mystical London underground, develop a simple road trip into a thriller or give us an insight into the world of dwarfs... The idea of independent film-making is again celebrated at its best in EUROPE-99EURO-FILMS 2!
