Great cinema from Austria!
25 March 2005 | by Bettina-23See all my reviews

This is an entertaining movie about the encounter of 2 very different men in Austria.Brilliantly played, a great satire on many things Austrian and eventually proving a lot of depth without being patronizingly educational but by showing life as it is....with a wink of the eye.

I have not seen many movies that have to offer so much of everything: great laughs, heart, bitter satire, slapstick and also a serious side.

The two main characters are played by the 2 guys who originally wrote the theatre play "Indien" and who also adapted the script for the movie....it is really a piece of art....and so much fun to watch!
