This film goes right in the heart of it all in Austria and for that matter in Western Europe as well. Islam is coming and Christans are afraid! That is the real truth! Struggle of Anna Maria and Nabil is a struggle of the worlds, different continents and cultures. But it has compatibility to it. Struggle between two great religions brings them together in love-hate relationship! Who will win? People in the park! They are the only the once who understand: There is no God and only thru sexual satisfaction you can achieve happiness before inevitable end!
It is also a story of foreigners coming to Austria for a better life and they do not find any! Austrians are terrified from them but can not start ovens in Aushwitz or Dachau yet. That little bit of power USA and Russia still have, prevents them from doing that.
Please try to obtain this film and watch it!
