Storyline

After the death of his mentor Disko, who pretty much ran Ottakring, Sammy (Michael Steinocher) has to find Disko's business papers. Otherwise Frau Jahn (Susi Stach) is threatening to take over Ottakring entirely with her loan shark business. At the same time German economics student Valerie (Cornelia Gröschel) comes to Vienna to write a paper on the economic and social structure of Ottakring. Valerie soon runs into Sammy and despite initial antagonism between the both of them, they realize that they might have more in common than they think. Written by kalafudra

A light-hearted portrayal of a Vienna neighbourhood
20 May 2017 | by VolcanoVaporizerSee all my reviews

If you've ever been to Ottakring you'll recognize a lot of the locations and probably even some of the characters.

The cast features a wide array of people one might encounter when walking through the real Brunnenmarkt area but doesn't take itself too seriously, all in all I find it a very authentic and at the same time self ironic portrayal of a Viennese district. Great dialogue in original accent, very funny and great cameos! A really cool Austrian comedy movie, the only drawback being it may be a bit harder to enjoy if one is not familiar with the place Ottakring.
