Rudi wears a suit, Daniel rides a bike. But despite all the differences between the two brothers, they become interested in the same woman. For different reasons, however - as Nora soon discovers...A comedy with depths, about loyalty, family ties and manipulation.Written by
This is a very amusing and brilliantly acted tale about two brothers who couldn't be more different. Daniel is the idealistic off-off-theater actor who earns his money as a warehouseman, Rudi is the smart and successful IT-Manager with the nice little family and the expensive car. When Rudi convinces his younger brother to spy on one of his employees, the clever but single software developer Nora, Daniel is drawn into a personal conflict. He accepts the job but inevitably he and Nora fall in love. When Daniel finds out that his brother is double-crossing him things are already running out of control.
The film works as a comedy but it also has philosophical aspects about the concepts of living, about trust, power and personal relationships. I liked this new work of Austrian Cinema because of its subtle humor and spirited direction of a newcomer, Johanna Moder.
