Slovakia is part of the Schengenarea (joined 2007). A Ukrainian passport holder with a valid visa for Slovakia does not need another visa for any other Schengencountry (Austria). The bordello owner in Bratislava paid a Slovakian policeman for getting a visa in his Ukranian passport (mistake). He speaks Russian, drives a Russian car and holds a Ukrainian passport. He needs no visa if he wants crossing the Slovakian-Austrian border. See more »

Austrian cinema at its best
14 March 2009 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

One awaits a crime thriller that closely follows the book by Wolf Haas and has many intelligent gags but the the viewer is then overwhelmed by a great masterpiece that works on many levels - a sarcastic thriller not unlike Fargo, dark humour, amazing photography that reveals some Austrian reality, an intelligent plot with cool twists, great acting, ironic social criticism etc. This movie is in a row with the Kottan series, Indien, the other Brenner-movies of course, Slumming etc. and reassures one that although Qualtinger is dead his humour is not gone. When viewing this film one gets almost sad by realizing how good Austrian cinema can be, but there is not much support for filmmakers in Austria. I have no idea if this movie can work in a translation, but its worth a try.
