Mein Führer ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Levy does his best to portray Hitler as a poor devil, an attempt that of course cannot succeed, because someone who admits that he is having a hard time can no longer be a poor devil. And just to make sure than no one will think of accusing him of trivializing the Third Reich or making fun of victims' suffering, Levy uses the family of Jewish actor Grünbaum as a moral counterweight to the Nazis." -- Spiegel Online

Tempo ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dieser Film ist das Kinodebüt des österreichischen Oscar® Preisträgers Stefan Ruzowitzky. 1996 entstanden, im Wiener Jugendmilieu angesiedelt, flott und amüsant inszeniert. Ein Rave-Movie um einen knapp 18-jährigen Ausreißer, der sich als Fahrradbote verdingt, sich bei seinen Fahrten in aufregende Tagträume hinein spinnt und schließlich nicht mehr zwischen Realität und Fantasie zu unterscheiden vermag. Seine Erfahrungen mit Musikvideos erleichterten es Ruzowitzky, die rasenden Rhythmen und den hämmernden Beat in einem für die Zuschauer geradezu stroboskopartig wirkenden Filmschnitt bildlich einzufangen. Das Tempo des Rave bestimmt auch den Lebensstil der Protagonisten."--Container
