THE LAST BRIDGE

The Last Bridge is a deep and touching drama that, at a time when people were trying to process what had happened in the dramatic preceding years, shows us war as a completely unfair reality. A reality that when compared to the value of human beings, of every human being, reveals itself in all its weakness and wickedness. In competition at the 1954 Cannes Film Festival.

MARIA SCHELL – A UNIQUE FACE

The famous Austrian actress Maria Schell distinguished herself throughout her remarkable career for her highly emotional acting, with which she often lent her face to women who were both vulnerable and strong-willed at the same time. So much so that she was nicknamed by her colleague Oskar Werner Seelchen – little soul.

THE ANGEL WITH THE TRUMPET

The Angel with the Trumpet, the successful feature film by Karl Hartl from 1948 and freely adapted from the novel The Vienna Melody, written by Ernst Lothar in 1946, is a family saga and faithful portrait of around sixty years of Austrian history, which successfully mixes the two different points of view – that of Hartl himself, as well as the point of view from the original novel.
