Four friends in their late twenties are drifting through life in Vienna, from clubs to skateparks, from band practice to parties. A suicide attempt puts an abrupt end to this seemingly carefree existence. It might be a bit late in life to reorient themselves, but there’s still always time for a ride on the merry-go-round. The constant struggle with growing up is accompanied by a longing for something bigger, for a sense of arrival, for a showdown. In his bittersweet feature-film debut, director Hannes Starz gave the dedicated cast around Valerie Pachner and Voodoo Jürgens much room for improvisation. The soundtrack features Alicia Edelweiss, Bulbul, Manfred Engelmayr and Thirsty Eyes – strong voices of Vienna’s music scene which the fictional band Black Candy dreams of conquering in the film.
No second screening at Stadtkino.
