I've seen this film on the Moscow International Film Festival 2004, where it was shown only twice in the non-contest programme. On my opinion this is the great example of the non-Hollywood low-budget motion picture. The scenario is very good, characters and acting are good, no FX, but it was so funny ...and their Austrian dialects.... Some scenes were shot like parody on the Lars von Trier's "Idiots" but looked funny and not serious. As a conclusion: good work, worth to see.
I'll really buy the DVD with this film when it'll be available in shops.
