Heller als der Mond

Brighter than the Moon

Virgil Widrich
An Italian named Paolo loses his job at a garage. At the same time an Austrian ex-contractor named Melles and his Rumanian driver Knarek rob a bank. Melles discovers that Knarek has smuggled his fiancée Julie over the border in the trunk of his car and tosses her out on the street. The two Lower-Austrian detectives Fischer and Gudrawzcuk begin their search for the bank robbers. Julie meets Paolo who then gives her a ride to Vienna. When they pass another bank, Julie tries to pull a robbery but winds up fainting. Paolo takes Julie to his appartment, but she isn't interested in Paolo. What has captured her interest are Austrian banks, which she says shine "brighter than the moon".
