Tempo is a film about sound and music. The only dialogue in the film is the word "stop". Timing is everything, they say. Here's a little film about the great art of shifting into the right tempo at the right time. It's also about finding the music in everything you do. A man is on his way to a very important appointment. He is in a hurry, but he is delayed by so many obstacles as he crosses town that an ordinary man would have collapsed with serious symptoms of stress ages ago. Where is he going? Will he make it on time? Written by Anonymous

Inventive and entertaining movie
10 March 2003 | by a9901548See all my reviews

"Tempo" is a really entertaining and inventive Austrian movie about the adventures of young biker-mailboy Jojo. The style is very inventive and full of pop-culture references.

This is the first movie of Stefan Ruzowitzky who later directed the "Anatomie" movies and now got internationally recognized with "The Conterfeiters" who won an Academy Award for best foreign language skills. Also great is the acting, especially Xaver Hutter and Nicolette Krebitz.

"Tempo" is a successful example of an Austrian film targeted for younger audiences.
