Exit ... Nur keine Panik

Feature Film, AT/BRD 1980, 102 min, dOF

In the urban anti-heimat film Exit … Nur keine Panik Hanno Pöschl and Paulus Manker play two daredevil petty criminals Kirchhoff and Plachinger, who go through the city fighting, drinking, and shagging. The two are on a frenzy through a Vienna of underground, film quote, and rebellion against narrow middleclass life. A rude suburban panorama and brazen hymn to the Viennese Strizzi, a hoodlum of sorts. The film was a scandal and world success and shows Hanno Pöschl in his best Strizzi role.
