Great Austrian Cinema lives!
18 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Despite the title, Austrian film is not going to die - it lives! and this film shows it again.

Being based on an excellent book, which also won the German Krimipreis 1999, it gives an great film, whereas the satire and sarcasm even gets better in the film. 100% black humour and 100% real, life can't be any more bizarre or funny as in this story of a former detective, now ambulance driver, trying to find the murderer of a nurse and later a fellow ambulance driver.

The cast contains some of the best Austrian comedy actors, especially actress Nina Proll shows once again her young talent. Karl Markovics acts best of all these people with the more serious and deep-minded character of the wheelchaired former angel of death.
