A Beginning of Something

Year of production: 1994

 
    Herbert Sobieski is the superintendent of an
apartment building not far from Vienna's Prater
amusement park. At night, he shows movies in a
run-down suburban cinema. His life is quiet,
withdrawn, seemingly trivial. The days proceed
in an orderly fashion, between Bassena and
projection room, savings club and the nursing
home where his mother lives. No one knows about
Herbert's dream of following his father to America,
except for Hans, his father's friend. When the
young student Rita moves into the building,
everything changes.
