Aufzeichnungen aus der Unterwelt

Notes From the Underworld

Tizza Covi, Rainer Frimmel

There is unrest in the milieu of the Viennese underworld of the 1960s. In a controversial trial the singer Kurt Girk and his legendary friend Alois have to pay for their proximity to the illegal card game "Stoss" with long prison sentences. The charismatic protagonists tell us about this time from a perspective never shown before. A love letter to a past Vienna that is also a social portrait of post-war Austria.
