'Clemence M. Schönborn''s first feature film is a typical Austrian black comedy, dealing with an easy-going forty-something, who likes playing games with others, which has serious consequences... Phyllis, in her early 40s, still lives together with her mother, whom she loves and hates at the same time. When she gets to know Henry, supporting actor of a soap opera, she pretends to love him, but sleeps with the show's lead actor Walter, whom she finally runs over with her car, which makes Henry the show's new star - and the new lover of the lead actress Doris. However, Phyllis isn't done with him... Written by
Fraeulein Phyllis is a great movie by the young Director Clemence Schoenborn. I have seen it in Moscow and Braunschweig on Film Festivals and I only can recommend it for Independent Movie Fans. A great Sophie Rois (I know her from Salzburg and Berlin) in connection with some unknown Cast members. A really well done black Comedy. I hope I can see a few more Comedies of this Type from Austria. Austrian Film is a must for Filmmaniacs, this pure style of Film and Music is a great Alternative to the American Big Budget movies. Also the style of the costumes and the set dressing is it worth to be seen. I don't know more films by Clemence Schoenborn, was this his first full length feature, if so it is a great thing and we can hope that he will make more films like that.
