TWO IN A CAR

Ernst Marischka’s Two in a Car perfectly embodies the mood of the melodramatic but nonetheless entertaining post-World War II Wiener Films, also proving to be a witty portrait of the society of the time.

THE LIFE AND LOVES OF MOZART

Particularly accurate in its settings and sufficiently attentive to the love torments of the two young protagonists, The Life and Loves of Mozart is distinguished by a direction that, however, would have needed more closeness to the characters themselves, in order to better render their internal conflicts derived from the difficult choices they have to make. In competition at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival.

ASPHALT

Asphalt takes its cue from some real-life stories and adopts a mise-en-scene that closely resembles Neorealism. And so, the result is a film divided into five episodes, incredibly rational in its irrationality. A film that openly speaks out against the war and – although the war has been over for many years now – points the finger directly at a hypocritical and conservative society.
