Pure Cinemagic

Author: Bobart from Austria

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is by far the best film from filmmaker/actor Wolf Morrison. Known for his funny versions of Trash Films here is his first serious film, an homage to the works of David Lynch.

He himself gives a solid performance: first he is the womanizer, who meets the lovely girl Julie in a bar and takes her home after saving her from being beaten by the bar owner, but he also understands her feelings of being lost in the city. After her death he becomes the sensitive one, who misses his big love and finally the one who takes his revenge.

But it is lead actress Julia Prock-Schauer who steals almost every scene. She is the shy, sensitive Julie that Scott fell in love with and she is also her sexy twin sister Karen, a femme fatal who seduces Scott just to put him down on the next day. Her performance is just outstanding!

And, of course, every good film has a great villain and Seth Raven as Mr. Househover is excellent is his role. There is one fine scene, when Scott enters his place to take his revenge and Househover just laughs at him.

Sonja Grenz as Petra, who tries to help Scott (they once had a relationship)and Astrid Vineyard as Stacy, the reporter who found Scott's lost tapes complete this excellent cast.

"Lost in Vienna, Austria" is so much more than just a simple revenge- story. There are some really great filmed surreal nightmare sequences in it and especially when Scott, Petra or Stacy look at some lost video footage the viewer is never sure if what he sees is real or just a video.

A story somewhere between Film Noir, Mystery Thriller and Drama with a beautiful cinematography, cool edits and an excellent Soundtrack between classical score, Jazz and Singer/Songwriter stuff and not to forget the fine performances from the actresses and actors make this film to something special. This is pure Cinemagic!

One of the best films I have ever seen

Author: David Clarke from United States
13 August 2013

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This film touched me so deep inside. There is so much passion in every scene. Rarely not much movies show love scenes with such a tenderness and warmth like the scenes between Julie and Scott and they are filmed in such perfect beauty. Wonderful lead actress Julia Prock-Schauer is such a sweetheart and it's really hard to watch how she is being tortured by her boss.

After her death Julie's boyfriend Scott (Wolf Morrison, in his best performance) tries to find someone he could talk about his situation but none of his family, not his parents, who never really understood him and not even his sister Alexandra, who never cared for him, are listening to him.

One day he gets a mysterious package per mail. In this package he finds a videotape and Julie's diary and soon he knows the awful truth about her death. He wants revenge and so he visits Julie's boss Househover (Seth Raven, giving us the perfect portrait of a real evil man). Househover tells him that he was tough on Julie because this world is a tough place and he tried to make her a tough person. But he broke her. Scott leaves his office in anger telling Househover that they both have an unfinished business.

Scott watches him to know his habits. In a surreal and great filmed nightmare scene Scott sees his life and the people he met in his life passing by and then Julie appears to tell him he should help her and set her soul free. Scott awakes, takes his gun and goes to Househover's place.

I don't want to spoil too much here because there are so many great plot twists that Hollywood would have made ten films out of this one here. Only one thing: After Julie's twin sister Karen appears on the scene, you don't know any more if this is fiction or reality, especially when a tape from Scott is shown where a reporter and Scott's best friend Petra talk about his disappearance.

If you only want to watch one film in the cinemas this year than this is the one! One of the best films I have ever seen.
