A Feature film by Ulrich Seidl

Release in France : 07/01/2009

    Synopsis

    Two trajectories develop in opposite directions. Olga, a young Ukrainian nurse, sets out to look for happiness in the West, where she becomes a cleaning lady in a geriatric home in Austria.

    Paul was a security guard in Vienna. Now out of work, he hits the road with his father-in-law, heading East to the Ukraine. Two destinies of young people looking for a new chance and who find themselves confronted by cruel reality. Two stories about the quest for happiness and money, about the terrible, frightening side of sexuality, about death, and the art of brushing your teeth with a stuffed fox.
