Two Austrian brothers try to find happiness abroad, while their father, who suffers from dementia, makes the same rounds day after day in the old-age home. BÖSE SPIELE links Ulrich Seidl’s feature films RIMINI and SPARTA to a family history set in Rimini, Romania, and Austria. At the same time, this magnum opus is a new vision rather than an alternative version; just as challenging as it is outstanding.
