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.

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.
