Storyline

Vienna, 1995. Jasmin, Tamara, Valentin, Senad and Roman live near the northern border of Austria. Their lives repeatedly intersect and drift apart. The characters involved are young migrants from the former Yugoslavia, Romania, Poland and Austria itself. Strangers in a strange land, they feel a sense of loss in their new, temporary environment. The five-some meet and get close to each other, hopelessly clinging to friendships and relationships with no future. They frequent cafés and train stations dreaming of a better tomorrow. Often, they just fall back on the prospect of short-term affection in yet another doomed romantic or sexual encounter. Trying hard to suppress the memories of war and alienation, they try to find moral strength and warmth through one another. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

A beautifully told story about the life of two confused young women.
16 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This story about a friendship between two very different women, is told in a raw yet warm tone, full of love. Barbara Albert's debut is very well executed, and the film is perfectly cast. Nordrand, now showing at the Stockholm Film Festival (1999), is a low-key film deserving a big audience. I hope it will get it.
