austrian films


The film shows not just the economic circumstances that led to a flaring up of political antisemitism, but also satirically plays through the consequences of a rapid exodus of the Jewish population of Vienna, called “Utopia” in the film.

Initially, the city’s “Aryan” population celebrate the departure of their Jewish neighbours with fireworks. But Utopia’s cultural life soon falls into neglect: cafes turn into beer halls, shops sell basic folk costumes rather than urban fashion, and foreign countries cut off their trade links.

“Strangely,” one political adviser tells the mayor, “our currency is still worth absolutely nothing.” Soon, posters start appearing around the city: “You’ve thrown out our prosperity with the Jews.”

Klimt’s famous first portrait of the Viennese socialite and art patron Adele Bloch-Bauer has been part of the Neue Galerie’s collection since 2006. It was the subject of a huge ownership dispute between the Austrian government and Adele’s niece Maria Altmann, who had been left the painting, amongst other Klimts, by her Uncle Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer upon his death in 1945. Maria’s story has been portrayed a number of times, including in last year’s film Woman in Gold, which starred Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Brühl.

Austrian horror film ‘Goodnight Mommy’ is literally making people faint…

A horror director mentioned in his discussion of the film, “In Austria, there isn’t much of a horror film tradition. When our film came out there, people didn’t care so much. So it was really funny when the US trailer went big and a whole wave of attention came back to Austria. People asked when the film would come out in theatres and we had to say, ‘It was already!’”

Goodnight Mommy—Ich seh, Ich seh—is a 2014 Austrian horror film directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. Set in the Austrian countryside, the film follows a mother, played by Susanne Wuest, who’s undergone plastic surgery. Returning home in bandages, her twin boys—acting newcomers Elias and Lukas Shwarz—don’t believe she is who she says she is. That’s all we’ll say.


Film recommendations: ANGST (1983) , Directed by Gerald Kargl

This Austrian film tells the story of a psychopath recently released from prison and is loosely based on the mass murderer Werner Kniesek, this psychopath starts taking out his sadistic fantasies on an unsuspecting family living in a secluded house.

This film is an absolutely brilliant film that is told in a different way than any other killer film I have seen it is told through the narration of the psychopath killer, it puts us (the audience) in the mind of the killer and what he is thinking when he is committing the “perfect” crime. Not to mention the brilliant cinematography and camera angles. 

This is one of my favourite films ever, if you want a great movie on murderers this one is absolutely brilliant 


The taper was extinguished. On this signal the Body Guards, pages, and equerries mounted on horseback, and all was ready for setting off. The Dauphin was with the Dauphiness. They were expecting together the intelligence of the death of Louis XV. A dreadful noise, absolutely like thunder, was heard in the outer apartment; it was the crowd of courtiers who were deserting the dead sovereign’s antechamber, to come and do homage to the new power of Louis XVI. This extraordinary tumult informed Marie Antoinette and her husband that they were called to the throne; and, by a spontaneous movement, which deeply affected those around them, they threw themselves on their knees; both, pouring forth a flood of tears, exclaimed: “O God! guide us, protect us; we are too young to reign.”
