MARKO FEINGOLD – A JEWISH LIFE

In Marko Feingold – A Jewish Life past and present meet, ‘collide’, and are much more similar than they might initially seem.

PAUL HÖRBIGER – UNFORGETTABLE GENTLEMAN

In addition to standing out for his versatility and his extraordinary way of winning the audience’s heart, the actor Paul Hörbiger was also the protagonist of singular, noteworthy events. Among the most famous performers of the Wiener Films, the characters he played, be they aristocrats or clumsy bellhops, are unforgettable.

Christian Berger stages important moral questions without ever being judgmental. And his Raffl can deservedly be described as a living, pulsating feature film, a simple and complex feature film at the same time. A timeless film.

CHASING THE LINE
