Wohin und zurück – Welcome in Vienna

Posted by martinteller on August 7, 2009

Wolff is now an American soldier, stationed near his old home in Austria, along with another Austrian Jew, Adler.  Wolff struggles with whether he wants to be an Austrian or American, while Adler struggles with being a Communist or a capitalist.  I thought this was the weakest of the trilogy, with a lot more dull meandering between the interesting moments… although those moments did contain some of Corti’s strongest themes.  Also, the English-speaking actors are really bad, which often seems to be the case with Americans in foreign productions (or maybe Austrians playing Americans, I dunno).  Rating: 7
