The film is set at Vienna’s Gänsehäufel lido, which was built on the Danube in the 1950s. A male figure, his identity unknown, serves as a recurrent motif that leads the spectator to a variety of locations at this place, deserted during the off season. His reason for being there is never revealed, though he’s obviously going through some kind of crisis. The late-modern buildings are empty, relieved of their normal function; the area defies the low season. The protagonist incessantly attempts, and fails, to reach another unidentified individual on his mobile telephone—and loses himself in the space between the various buildings. The voiceover, apparently a phone conversation, gradually proves to be miscellaneous jumble of quotes from the fields of philosophy and economics. A string of empty phrases imply reflection on the global “crisis.” And in the end, everything remains the same. [english translation: Steve Wilder]Credits:
