Austrian small time crook Johnny Pichler meets a dubious 'businessman' at the Slovak border to hand over a wad of cash. Things do not go as planned and suddenly Johnny is on the run with callgirl Shirley, the money and the gangster's Cadilliac. After several fruitless attempts to sell the car, Shirley dumps Johnny, who has hopelessly fallen in love with her. Based on an address on a photo, Johnny decides to search for her in Lviv in the Ukraine. Written by Armin Ortmann <armin@sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de>

Moving, thrilling, funny! Go see it!
22 September 2002 | by NinaSemmelinSee all my reviews

I have seen Blue Moon at the Locarno International Film Festival this summer and liked a lot. To me and my friend it was the most interesting feature showing there. Light hearted, great performances and very subtle in its tone and style. I talked to a lot of other festival visitors who all loved the film. Johnny and Ignace (the two Germans) are terrific and Jana, the Ukrainian looker is surely a star! There is a European tone in all this, as if Lubitsch and Wilder amalgated with Kustorica and Almodovar, yet there is a warm an tender female touch to the story. Great movie! Go see it!
