Have you ever seen Vienna at night? Stefan Ruzowitzky rather than Rainhard Fendrich gives a new answer to this question with Die Hölle, or “hell”. Starting from a Rear Window moment in which a young woman is witness to a murder, he stages a racy game of cat-and-mouse marked by spectacular stunts and brutal chase scenes. An example of the genre in unusual – Austrian – style.
