BÖSE SPIELE Rimini Sparta

WICKED GAMES Rimini Sparta

Ulrich Seidl
Three men. Two brothers and their father, whose past catches up with them. Former star crooner Richie Bravo chases after his faded glory through a wintry Rimini. When his adult daughter suddenly turns up, demanding money, Richie’s world begins to collapse. His younger brother Ewald meanwhile is seeking to make a new beginning in a remote corner of Romania. With young boys from the area, he transforms a dilapidated school into a fortress, thereby arousing the parents’ suspicions. And in a nursing home in Austria, their father goes round in circles. WICKED GAMES Rimini Sparta is the combined and extended version of Ulrich Seidl’s diptych about unfulfilled longing and the pain of finding yourself.
