Out of Time (0+)

Austria, 2006, colour, 80 min.
Director: Harald Friedl
The small old-fashioned family shops in Vienna are disappearing or holding out. These are the last days of the Button Queen, the drugstore owner, the butcher and the fine leather-goods dealer. Yet this quaint picture is soon shattered by stories and gestures marked by the disruptions of History, social violence and disappointment, behind the jumble of goods and obsessive tidying up.
