»I wanted the film, which is anyway a mixture of several genres, to be a satire of modern middle-class life as well. A blow of fate for a middle class person isn’t usually purely tragic; generally it’s also comic.«
Josef Hader about WILD MOUSE
«The blow to Georg's ego is devastating.»
In his directorial debut WILD MOUSE Josef Hader dispatches an eminent classical music reviewer on a tragi-comic rollercoaster ride, watching closely to see how a sophisticated spirit can be transformed into a wild beast as a result of a bruised ego. A conversation with the writer, director and leading actor.
