Trivia

Shortly after filming began the original title "Thekken" was changed to "Ainoa" to avoid confusion with the similarly titled video game "Tekken". Although "Thekken" was the name of one of the main characters no dialogue lines mentioning the name were shot then. See more »

Groundbreaking Austrian Sci-Fi
29 September 2006 | by HammerhaiSee all my reviews

I saw the Austrian movie Ainoa in a test screening and i was more than surprised. I didn't really expect anything great, as Austrian movies (except comedies) usually lack any entertainment factor and are consumable for a small, intellectual audience only. Ainoa is quite the opposite. Although based on a deeply poetic and philosophic thought, the film convinced me with its narrative quality, the surprisingly well performing actors and the enormous love for detail that these guys show in every scene of the movie. Hard to imagine this film has been shot entirely in Austria, the locations throw you into another world. And hard to imagine they hardly had any money for that. Of course Ainoa cannot be compared with big Hollywood blockbuster movies, but i think these filmmakers id a good job in making that NOT the point at all. That's what i really enjoyed about it. Its not just a poor "Austrian Star Wars", much more than that this movie has a soul and a quality of its own, although the story might irritate some people with its very simple, sometimes even naive but always thoughtful approach. Instead of relying on big special effects, it convinces with its heart and poetry. Its worth while watching it for those who like Sci Fi and fairy tales, or simply a movie not seen every day in cinema.
