ICH ODER DU

Realism, minimalism, music and even, from time to time, a welcome irony make Ich oder Du a captivating feature film both from the point of view of the story itself and from the point of view of its staging. A perfect picture of 1980s Vienna magically comes to life on the movie screen. At the Viennale 2023, as part of the Filmarchiv Austria’s retrospective Keine Angst.

ALMA & OSKAR

Alma & Oskar is not only the genesis of some of the most important paintings of the last century. Alma & Oskar is passion, desire, anger. A feature film that is extremely refined in its staging and is inspired by what has been made overseas, while showing its own, marked personality. At the Diagonale’23.

EGON SCHIELE: DEATH AND THE MAIDEN

There really is a lot to be enjoyed in dealing with all the numerous ideas that the life of this brilliant artist has to offer us. All depends on knowing how to handle them well, in order to make a never predictable or didactic work that is able to portray one of Austria’s most important artistic personalities as passionately and faithfully as possible. And Dieter Berner has perfectly succeeded in this never easy and by no means banal task with his Egon Schiele: Death and the Maiden.
