Finally the wait is over: Nina Proll and Ursula Wolschlager are celebrating their screenwriting debut, and the Austrian comedy film has its first female protagonist for many years, in a production directed by Sabine Derflinger. This heroine is sexually active, she always has a pithy comment on her lips, and at times she is as shaky on her feet as her character itself. A female figure who is full of surprises, guaranteed to make emotions run high. On the one hand she prompts riotous applause – as with the premiere of the film in Vienna – while on the other she initiates a lively debate about the suitability of a female protagonist who is so against the grain. We are delighted by the applause, and we welcome the debates. That’s what constitutes cinema that aims to be more than simply entertainment… and makes us pretty proud of “Anna Fxxxing Molnar”.

The house of cards she so carefully built seems more fragile than expected. Everything in Anna’s life begs for a new start to get her life back on track. But the only thing coming around at the moment is a firefighter, Christian (Murathan Muslu) …
