Storyline

Tempo is a film about sound and music. The only dialogue in the film is the word "stop". Timing is everything, they say. Here's a little film about the great art of shifting into the right tempo at the right time. It's also about finding the music in everything you do. A man is on his way to a very important appointment. He is in a hurry, but he is delayed by so many obstacles as he crosses town that an ordinary man would have collapsed with serious symptoms of stress ages ago. Where is he going? Will he make it on time? Written by Anonymous

fast, powerful, amusing
15 January 1999 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

A great study of young Austria between techno and home-sweet-home boredom. Fast and powerful with good actors (Jojo), some really amusing and witty parts (especially the references to daily talk shows) and a lot of things to think about and discuss over a beer after the film. This film shows that reality can always be worse than your daytime fantasies.
